In the post on his Instagram story, Matthew said: “I want to apologise 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.
“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.”
He went on to say: “It is not what I stand for. I shouldn’t have used this language in the first place and I won’t use it agin. I am so sorry for the hurt I have caused.
“I take full responsibility and continue to hold myself accountable for my actions.”
Billie and her boyfriend Matthew have been spotted together in public numerous times, and it’s been reported the two have been dating for at least a few months.
