Sukihana was in Atlanta last weekend to serve as an on-field commentator for The Crew League. It was supposed to be fun, but it turned into a seemingly traumatic experience when YK Osiris came up behind her, rubbed her shoulders, and grabbed her jaw to kiss her. Sukihana was visibly shocked and uncomfortable, screaming and trying to avoid Osiris’ advances.
As the video began circulating online this week, people rushed to its defense. Now Osiris posted an apology on Instagram on Wednesday night June 14.
“I want to publicly apologize to Sukihana most sincerely,” he wrote. “In an attempt to be playful, I misinterpreted the moment and violated Sukihana’s boundaries. I understand the importance of consent and am embarrassed by my behavior. I take full responsibility and did several attempts to apologize. I have the greatest admiration for Sukihana and never intended to disrespect her.
Earlier Wednesday, Sukihana appeared to address the incident on Twitter before deactivating her account (as captured by XXL).
“I drink to hide that I’m very sensitive,” she tweeted. “I feel things more than the average person. I quit drinking yesterday but today I cried all day. I asked God to strengthen me and use me to help others and order my steps in his word. I just want to go away for a while.
In Sukihana’s last tweet before the deactivation, she said, “I’m hurt and scared to stand up for myself.”
