“Regardless of whether my opinions are correct or not, I apologise for using swear words, vulgar expressions, & displaying a double standard.
I sincerely apologise to my followers who were upset by the controversy that I caused once again. It will be the final time happened & I’ll try my very best to avoid causing any controversy again in the future.
Although, no matter how I keep thinking back on what I said, I still think not wrong to curse at (those who engage in violence) & on specific websites.
