After facing outrage for addressing Cassper's mother in his promo video challenging the rapper to a boxing battle, the veteran actor swallowed his words on Monday.
"Before I die, I want to make sure I beat you so they can write this is the man who beat Caster or Costa or whatever your sh*t name is on my grave... Patrick said, "Come you son of a b*tch."
Cassper expressed his displeasure with the actor's choice of words, claiming that he was being disrespectful to his mother.
"Who the f*ck is that old man, and why is he calling my mother a b*tch?" says the narrator. Why must my family be treated in this manner, yo? F*ck, this is getting out of hand! He wrote, "Modimo nna ha ke sa kgona (God, I can't take this any longer), ke kopa thuso (I need aid)."
Patrick later published a statement expressing contrition and expressing his regret to Cassper and his followers.
"As an adult, I should have." My apologies, I humbly apologize from the bottom of my heart for using such harsh language at your mother. Even though the challenge was a great idea at the time, it has now been ruined by what I said.
"Please forgive me and forgive me South Africans, I apologise from the bottom of my heart." I'm kicking myself for the final sentence. "I'm sorry for using that," he said.
Patrick was simply using his name to trend on social media, according to Cassper, who responded to his apology.
"These are strange times. " "Everyone thinks 'Cassper Nyovest' when they run out of trending ideas," he wrote.
The rapper went on to explain that he was weary of his family being dragged through the mud on social media all the time.
"If there's one thing I regret about my celebrity, it's how outsiders have treated my family." I try so hard to be about my own business, but it's always like this, and I have to keep moving in order to safeguard my brand, because companies never understand. This is excessive, man."
In a series of tweets, the rapper also expressed his sadness for the unwelcome attention his family received as a result of his celebrity.
