Josh of the popular YouTube channel "Korean Englishman," feels responsible for his wife GabieKook's actions and states he will stop his activities

AKP STAFF

Josh, from the popular YouTube channel "Korean Englishman," apologized for the recent controversy over his wife's birthday celebration during the self-quarantine period.

On October 13, Josh posted on his YouTube channel community an apology letter stating, "I want to apologize for causing disappointment, concern, and discomfort to so many of you with the video uploaded on Gabie’s channel last Saturday. I’m sorry this apology comes so late."

He continued to state, "I am truly sorry to the countless people who have made so many sacrifices to keep us safe, and I am sorry to all of you who are also sacrificing daily to fight this pandemic. I am still reflecting on the gravity of my actions with the deepest regrets."

He wrote, "While in self-quarantine after arriving in Korea, I invited a few of Gabie’s friends to drop off gifts at the door and we were careless about quarantine rules while greeting those friends. This was wrong and irresponsible."

Previously, GabieKook returned to Korea but posted a video on October 10 in which she showed the celebration of her birthday. In the video, GabieKook's acquaintances are seen visiting the YouTuber as they stand outside of the door.

The YouTuber received criticism for breaking the quarantine guidelines during the two weeks of self-quarantine. Many netizens wondered if having acquaintances come for a birthday celebration breaks the rules even if they stood outside of the house.

Josh concluded his apology by stating, "Realising the fact that I have compromised the incredible efforts that Korea, as a country has been putting in for months on end, makes my heart aches that much more. I am truly ashamed and truly sorry for failing to uphold and support these efforts."

He then stated that he will be taking time off from content creation to take the time to self reflect.

When this pandemic started one guy quarantined from abroad invited his friends to his house coz he was bored eating alone. After few days some of them got positive and some neighbors who use same elevator got positive too.on the other city 2 men went out from quarantine facillity to smoke outside the building coz theyre bored staying inside their room were punish too. And when some foreigners who visited korea went out to eat dinner when they should be quarantined for 14 days were sent back to their country after breaking protocol. Whats this two's excuse.. will u die if u wont celebrate ur birthday?? Cant it wait for 2 weeks ?? And for her to educate her followers to follow guidelines and be careful when she even breaking it herself.She even telling them how hard for being Asian living in Europe at this time coz people always thought u have virus.
