Namaste. I would like to publicly apologize for my action or lack thereof related to the sexual violence survivor who has bravely shared her story on social media. I would also want to share my side of the story trying my best to not make it about myself because it is not. It is about justice for the survivor and me acknowledging my role in it, but I hope
you take the time to read what I have to share. To the survivor (I am keeping this short since you mentioned my action
s trigger you so I am trying to be as respectful to you as I can. I am extremely sorry. No excuses. I don’t remember the details clearly, but I do remember you calling me and trying to talk about the abuser and I also remember me choosing not to support you when you needed me to. That is unforgiveable and I do not expect you to forgive me. But I wish for you to know that I am deeply sorry for not actively listening to you, for not believing you, and for not supporting you. You have every right to be angry with me and I deserve all the hate that I am getting because I truly failed you. I totally admit that by not supporting you then I have contributed to the injustice you have suffered.
