Todrick Hall's Instagram story about the dissolution of his relationship went viral this week after the Drag Race judge used the platform to put his ex on blast. “I’m legit shaking,” he said after sharing screenshots and airing air the couple's dirty laundry. “I haven’t been this pissed in over a decade.”
But now that a few days have passed it seems that Hall is feeling contrite about oversharing. In a two-part video shared on his account, Hall opened up about what led to his initial posts.
"I posted some things on my Insta story a couple days ago I should not have posted. I was in a situation where someone I loved had betrayed me and lied to me. And while he was not my boyfriend, we were in a sort of relationship. There were betrayals and lines that were crossed. I should have handled those situations behind the scenes. And instead I took to Instagram which was a very immature Regina George-esque approach at life, and…I posted things online not realizing the impact that it would have. This person has been receiving death threats and people telling him that he should commit suicide…That is not something that is okay. I don’t think it is fair for me to act like it is you all’s fault for doing that. It’s my fault for blasting him on my social media. I really apologize, I should have taken the Michelle Obama approach. I took the Cardi B approach. I love Cardi B but that was not the time to do that. My mom has taught me better than that."
"This is not the way I would want my child ever to handle this situation," he added. "I will continue working on myself to be a better person for you all."
I hate this thumbnail but I needed to say this. I have to lead by example, and this week I made poor choices. No one told me to do this, but I’m doing it because I feel like it’s the right thing to do. Please don’t attack Danny anymore, he is a good person, who just made a human mistake as we’ve both done in this situation. I’m sure he needs love in this moment too. You guys know my character and this is not what I’m about. I had a weak moment, but I will push through this chapter. I will continue to work on building a better me, but don’t ever lie to me, cuz I’m f**kin’ crazy. K bye
