-Apology Template Team
In light of recent events I thought it was necessary to finally come forward and address the recent [allegations/events/pictures/tweets/posts] that have surfaced about me in the media. Some of what you have been hearing about my current situation is true, however, please know that the recent [article/news coverage] in [magazine/newspaper/internet website/social media] does not include all of the correct facts. What is true, is that I have engaged in some behavior that has been both embarrassing to me and my [family/wife/husband/partner/studio/team], and for that I deeply regret my actions. I am a very emotional person and I let my [temper/problem/organs] get the best of me. Just because I’m [on the field/in the spotlight/on TV/ in the movies/in the Senate], does not mean I’m not human.
I also want to take this time to publicly apologize to my [family/wife/husband/coach/team/studio]. I ask that the media be mindful of [her/his/ their] feelings and give us the privacy that we deserve as we deal with this matter behind closed doors. Know that I am seeking counseling for my [addiction/temper/indiscretions] and hoping that the counselor will help me get to the bottom of why I acted the way I did. I have seen the [said indiscretion] and how it can rip a family apart, and it is my hope that we will be able to recover.
Let me also take this opportunity to apologize to my [fans/fellow teammates/sponsors/PETA/Sports Entity/Republicans/Democrats] for my actions; and know that I will do everything I can to make sure this does not taint the image that you all stand for.
Thank you for your time and your willingness to give me privacy on this matter.
