I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has come out to support me today. It doesn’t change what I did, but it does mean a lot to know that people are willing to believe me when I say this whole thing was one big mistake, and that I’m truly remorseful.
However, and MOST importantly: I…
I love your work but I won’t be following it or recommending it anymore. This is the policy I keep when artists I admire choose to do stupid things like send unwanted photos to women. It’s tough, but I can’t support someone like that. While I understand your explanation for your actions, please realize that your intentions mean NOTHING to the person on the receiving end. They cannot read your mind.
You have gotten a lot of support. But you should be thinking about where that support is coming from. From what I’ve read, it is almost exclusively coming from men. Also from what I’ve read, many women avoid you because of your behavior and warn other women to do the same. After your admission of guilt, I am obviously more inclined to believe the women involved.
You have a lot of work to do in terms of reevaluating how you act as a “26-year old bachelor” and earning people’s trust back. So, take some time to yourself, accept that you fucked up, and then talk to people about how you can be a better human.
I would like to be a fan again, someday.
