Billie Eilish’s boyfriend, actor Michael Tyler Vorce, has addressed his resurfaced posts that consisted of homophobic, racist and misogynistic words.
According to Daily Mail, the 29-year-old wrote an apology via his Instagram Story saying, “I want to apologize for the things that I wrote on social media in the past. The language I used was hurtful and irresponsible and I understand how offensive those words are.”
He went on to say, “Whether it was a lyric, a quote or just me being dumb, it does not matter. I am ashamed and deeply sorry that I used them in any context. It is not how I was raised and it is not what I stand for. I shouldn’t have used this language in the first place and I won’t use it again. I am so sorry for the hurt I have caused.”
He ended by declaring to “take full responsibility and continue to hold myself accountable for my actions.”
Vorce is @corduroygraham on Instagram and has 41,1000 followers, but has recently made his account private, the media outlet reported.
As an actor, he’s best known for his roles in the 2016 TV movie Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? alongside James Franco, as well as Little Monsters (2012), Return Home (2016) and Dark Hours: Typee (2016).
19-year-old Eilish hasn’t responded to the claims against her boyfriend nor her fans accusing her of queerbating, but that hasn’t stopped her fans from looking for any hints. The songstress liked a post on Instagram that scrutinized her fandom that read: “This fandom is so embarrassing sometimes like why would you go in someone’s comments and say something that you literally don’t even know is true and something y’all LITERALLY MADE UP, sometimes y’all are so dumb. Some of you just need to learn how to mind your business.”
