Binasag na ng Italian-Canadian model at aspiring actor na si Nicholas Timothy Fowler o Nico Fowler ang kanyang pananahimik.
Ito ay ilang araw matapos ibulgar ng Kapuso actress na si Arianne Bautista, sa pamamagitan ng Instagram at Facebook, ang ginawang panloloko sa kanya ni Nico.
Noong June 25, inilahad ni Arianne kung paano niya natuklasan ang private conversation at pakikipagtalik ni Nico sa iba't ibang babae.
NICO FOWLER: "I MADE A BIG MISTAKE."
Ngayong Biyernes, June 28, si Nico naman ang naglabas ng pahayag sa pamamagitan din ng Facebook.
Nakapaloob sa kanyang mahabang statement ang pagsisisi at pangakong magbabago na.
Ipinahayag din Nico na kahit walang dugong Pinoy na nananalaytay sa kanya ay mahal na mahal daw niya ang Pilipinas.
Saad niya, "My mission in the Philippines has always been to inspire the youth and give back to this country in a positive way and I mean this with every fiber of my being.
"Mahal ko ang Pilipinas and it hurts me so much that I've hurt a lot in this situation.
"Although I have let you down now, I promise to learn and grow from this.
"Alam ko kung gaano kalaki ang nagawa kong mali and pangako ko na magbabago na po ako.
"We all have mistakes and struggles, and even regret things in our past.
"But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, you are here now with the power to make things better and shape your future.
"I promise to become a better person from this, and again I am deeply sorry.
"It has been a long and disheartening last few days."
Humingi rin siya ng kapatawaran sa ex-girlfriend sa nagawa niyang panloloko at pananakit.
Pahayag ni Nico, "I want to apologize to my ex-girlfriend, Arianne for the hurt that I have caused her.
"I made a big mistake. It is indefensible and have learned a valuable lesson in life with regards to being faithful and respectful to women.
"Alam ko na sobrang mali ang ginawa ko and I have taken a good, hard look in the mirror over the past couple days and rest assured, I will become a better person as a result."
Patuloy niya, "I also want to express my sincere apologies to my friends, family, and fans that I have let down in the process.
"I know that the tears that run down my face are not worthy of your forgiveness, but I hope that with time you are able to forgive me.
MESSAGE TO BASHERS
May mensahe naman si Nico sa kanyang bashers:
"To all the bashers that have sent me death threats, hate messages, and have gone to the extent of approaching me in public places to verbally harass me, I want you to know that cyber-bullying (bullying per se) is not okay.
"If you think you are doing good by bullying someone and telling them “go k*ll yourself”, “You’re f*cking gross f*gg*t”, “go to h*ll f*ckboy”, “burn in h*ll an*mal”, “p*king*na mo”, “d*e in h*ll you f*ck*ng pig”, “you are a d*m*n inside”, etc., you are wrong.
"Hiding behind a computer screen doesn't make it okay to push someone to commit suicide, you never know where a person's mental condition is at.
"There are two sides to every story in life and making life threatening comments to someone is no way to handle things. I would never wish this upon anyone.
"I hope those cyber-bullies reading this will think twice before harassing the next person online, because it’s not cool to be cruel. Another thing is that AIDS/HIV is a very serious topic.
"Please, let’s be sensitive enough not to joke about it or wish upon anyone to acquire the disease.
"Millions of people are suffering from the condition and it’s just not right to carelessly comment about it.
"The world will be a better place if we all learn to spread love instead of hate."
Dagdag pa niya, "Sa lahat ng fans, friends, and family, I appreciate your supportive messages over the past few days.
"My heart is filled with regret, sadness and embarrassment.
"I’ve been walking a lot outside, thinking and praying.
"Praying that God can forgive me and cleanse me of my sins.
"Praying that one day he can free me of my wrongdoings and failures.
"Praying that He can give me the strength to move forward in my life and career sa Pilipinas.
Si Nico ay nakasama sa music video ng actress-singer na si Nadine Lustre na “St4y Up.”
Nai-post din ni Nico sa kanyang Facebook account kamakailan na kasama siya sa isang Korean movie.
