Jack has since spoken out on the reports and issued an apology via his YouTube account.

“I’m sorry to anyone that I upset, anyone that I offended, anyone I made feel uncomfortable.

“Growing up I was all over social, my entire life was on social media an through that it led to be my job.

He went on to say:

“I was just young, stupid and that’s not an excuse whatsoever. The thing is I am still growing up, I’m learning every single day”.

The 23-year-old went on to say that it was difficult “growing up online” and that he hopes his followers can learn from his mistakes. In fact, his exact words were, never put anything online that you wouldn’t say to your mum.
