The actor respects that Rock still doesn’t want to speak out about the situation and has expressed much regret and apologized to all those affected, such as his colleague’s parents.
“The work I’m trying to do is that I’m deeply sorry, and I’m trying to feel unmerciful without feeling ashamed of myself. i am human I made a mistake. I try not to think of myself as a piece of shit.”
“I know it was confusing. I know it was shocking. But I promise that I am deeply committed to bringing light, love and joy into the world. So if you (Rock) think it’s possible, I promise we can be friends again.”
