The actor recently took to his Instagram stories to acknowledge and apologize about the situation.
"I want to apologize 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." he wrote (via the outlet mentioned above)
Vorce then stated that he's "deeply sorry" and "ashamed" that he had used those words in the past. He also mentioned that he was not raised that way and regretted using those foul language.
He concluded his statement by promising that he won't do it again and will "take full responsibility" and hold himself "accountable" for his actions.
His Instagram account remains private at the time of this writing.
Fans not convinced with his apology
Following his statement, fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment with the actor's apology.
"he was 20+ years old, he should have known better." one fan wrote.
"A grown man?? Who realized his mistakes after ppl started attacking him?? Okay....." another user wrote.
"He's sorry because he was caught, nothing genuine about it." a fan chimed in.
Even though he faced major backlash from most Twitter users, some still sided with him, "Cancel culture doesn't work.. It never will... And if an apology is never accepted, what's even the point in wanting celebrities to apologize then?" one wrote.
Still, fans continued to dismiss other supporters who defend him "stop defending a grown ass man for saying racial and homophobic slurs??" one tweeted.
Billie Eilish also faced controversy
As we previously reported, Vorce's rumored girlfriend, Billie Eilish, had also faced backlash from fans this week for allegedly queer-bating as she was seen hanging out with the actor.
Other fans then shut down the allegations by saying Eilish never came out as a part of LGBTQIA+ and never was romantically involved with a woman in the past.
