"I want to apologise to Jonathan Van Ness, who as I have come to understand ALWAYS promotes positivity and continues to be an advocate for all," he wrote, acknowledging that the previous post on his own Instagram account had been an attempt to promote a positive attitude.
Morad also spoke about the drama on his Instagram story, saying: "I took a joke that was supposed to be a Mean Girls reference way too far, and I recognise that there was no justification for it. That's just not my style. I'm not a mean person. I don't want that kind of drama in my life."
