It seems an apology just isn’t enough to stop the barrage of shocking tweets being revealed coming from Jack Maynard.
The axed I’m A Celebrity contestant has seen more derogatory tweets exposed with the YouTuber joking about rape.
In the tweets, which he wrote in 2011, he said: ““If you get me to 1500 followers by tomorrow… I will kiss you……. Most likely rape you though.”
Another reads: “I raped her… haha.”
Commenting on the new revelations, Jack shared: “have taken some time to reflect on the comments, tweets and ultimately my behaviour in the past, including a tweet sent in 2011 that is the subject of a story today…
“I was young, naive and stupid – but as I said previously, age is no excuse.
My immaturity meant that I didn’t stop for a second to think whether these comments would hurt or harm anyone – something I have learnt is entirely wrong.
“If I had just thought for a moment, about how stupid they were, I would never have sent them. Nothing can justify the language I used, there is no defence – I am truly sorry. My childish attitude back then is not a representation of my thoughts and feelings now.”
He added: “I take full responsibility and regret my mistakes. As an adult, I understand the effect my words have on people, whether I have a big or small platform to speak from. Again, I am so sorry to anyone I have offended or disappointed.”
Jack left the jungle last week after discussions with ITV and his management.
Accusations spanned from old tweets to the fact he was inappropriately messaging a 14 year old girl when he was 16 years old.
