thank you for the thousands of messages of love and support all over twitter and my message requests here on instagram. I am going to release a full statement when the time is right but for now I would just like to say sorry and thank you. I ask forgiveness from my management, the brands, supporters, friends, my family and everyone else I let down by what I did and/or who I am. Im sorry, I was wrong in my actions and failed to uphold the values I so strongly try to convey online. It was not my intention to hurt anyone or elude the truth of who I am for all these years but rather a showbiz decisions based on the state of our nation in regards to acceptance and representation of who I am. But I sincerely thank everyone for not failing to remind me that I am human and that I too am loved. —Never again will I be shackled by the fear of what might be said about who I am for fear of losing my career and instead, I will seek help, heal and champion change, acceptance and representation for the bisexual community and/or anyone who is met with prejudice in our society. I see now that my actions are not caused by but rather the effect of the unhealthy and toxic suppression of all of who I am as a human being. Im in a better place now. My passion is performing, making people happy & making people smile. My only hope is that I can continue to use this platform to do such in whatever new path this universe-given experience has opened up for me. For now, I will rest, reevaluate and come back stronger and better than ever. I love you all, I have learned and I am growing. thank you. 🌱🏳️‍🌈⚤

“I ask forgiveness from my management, the brands, supporters, friends, my family and everyone else I let down by what I did and/or who I am,” Diaz wrote Tuesday in an Instagram post.

“Im sorry, I was wrong in my actions and failed to uphold the values I so strongly try to convey online,” he added.

Diaz’s apology came after a certain fitness coach named Miguel Chanco reportedly took to Facebook last week to accuse the actor of making an indecent proposal to him.

The actor then expressed thanks to supporters and vowed he will not “be shackled” by the fear of what others would say about him.

“But I sincerely thank everyone for not failing to remind me that I am human and that I too am loved,” Diaz said.

“Never again will I be shackled by the fear of what might be said about who I am for fear of losing my career and instead, I will seek help, heal and champion change, acceptance and representation for the bisexual community and/or anyone who is met with prejudice in our society,” he added.

Diaz also announced he will “rest” for now and will “come back stronger.”

“For now, I will rest, reevaluate and come back stronger and better than ever. I love you all, I have learned and I am growing. thank you,” the actor said. /je
