Mind you, the video was filmed in a public space, possibly a coffee shop or restaurant with a lot of background noise, but I digress.

“And during the time that we were filming, you were my best friend. Even though I knew our relationship wasn’t going to end in marriage, I didn’t want what we had to end either. I loved every second of it,” he continued. “And I’m so, so sorry that I hurt you with my words. That’s the last thing I wanted from all of this. I’m sorry, Deepti.”

He captioned the post, “I’m sorry, @lifewithdeeps . I’m ready to take accountability for my actions and be better. While I’ve reached out privately, I think it’s also important I apologize publicly for the sake of your family and friends that I’ve upset as well.”

Shake Apologizes To Deepti With Awkward, Public Video

While the thought behind the apology is nice and all, the fact he made the video in a public setting was off putting to his fans.

“Bro you had to do this at Dunkin?,” one person commented.

Another echoed the public establishment sentiment writing, “Are you in a restaurant? Mystified why you do this in a public place, truly.”

“Its only because everyone is coming for you…,” a critic wrote.

Someone took the opportunity to make this jab, “I bet your mom made you apologize,” and “Deepti and Kyle are drinking margaritas together right now.... too little, too late.”

Another person called Shake out for doing “damage control at its best.”
