After his video on the news went viral last week, spring breaker Brady Sluder is apologizing for his actions.

In a time when people were being quarantined at home and not going out for fear of spreading the virus, Brady was caught on a news interview in Florida as he was partying with his friends on spring break. The video of his flippant comments went viral.

“If I get corona, I get corona. At the end of the day, I’m not gonna let it stop me from partying,” Brady said. “We’re just out here having a good time. Whatever happens, happens.”

That comment was seen over and over as people were fearing for their lives. Just seeing how the younger generation was taking the warnings got many people upset. Now, the young Ohio man is apologizing for his words. In a post on Instagram, Brady shared his apology.

“I would like to sincerely apologize for the insensitive comment I made in regards to COVID-19 while on spring break. I wasn’t aware of the severity of my actions and comments. I’d like to take this time to own up to the mistakes I’ve made and apologize to the people I’ve offended. Like many others, I have elderly people who I adore more than anything in the world and other family members who are at risk, and I understand how concerning this disease is for us all. Our generation may feel invincible, like I did when I commented, but we have a responsibility to listen and follow the recommendations in our communities. I will continue to reflect and learn from this and continue to pray for our well-being. I deeply apologize from the bottom of my heart for my insensitivity and unawareness of my actions.”

He went on to add his thoughts in the caption alongside the photo.

“I’ve done a lot of things in my life that I’m not proud of. I’ve failed, I’ve let down, and I’ve made plenty of mistakes,” Brady wrote in the caption.”I can’t apologize enough to the people i’ve offended and the lives I’ve insulted. I’m not asking for your forgiveness, or pity. I want to use this as motivation to become a better person, a better son, a better friend, and a better citizen. Listen to your communities and do as health officials say. Life is precious. Don’t be arrogant and think you’re invincible like myself. I’ve learned from these trying times and I’ve felt the repercussions to the fullest. Unfortunately, simply apologizing doesn’t justify my behavior. I’m simply owning up to my mistakes and taking full responsibility for my actions. Thank you for your time, and stay safe everyone. ❤️.”

We think he learned a lesson here.
