He continued, "If I offended anybody, that wasn't my intention. It was just a bit of fun between friends. But I apologize to anyone who may have taken offense in any way, shape, or form."
"It was not intended to be that way it was just... we play pranks on one another all the time and virally I think this did not come across that way - but between us it was different."
