A man who posted a Facebook photo of himself wearing a “slag” costume and holding a gun to the head of a woman has apologized for his actions, saying he was just joking.
Michael Slager, who also goes by the name of “Michael” on social media, posted the photo on March 4 with the caption, “It’s just a little something you have to do in your life,” according to a Facebook post by the woman who posted the image.
The post was shared more than 1,000 times.
The post has since been deleted, but the woman’s account has been active.
In the post, she wrote that Slager “said ‘I’m gonna kill this woman’ before going to the police.”
“I am sorry for what I did,” Slager wrote.
“It was just a joke.
I never meant to hurt anyone and am sorry if I offended anyone.”
A day after the post went viral, the man posted an apology to the woman, saying, “I have no remorse for what happened.
I am so sorry for any hurt my actions may have caused you.
I have also done a lot of research about how to dress up in a costume to make myself appear more intimidating.””
My apology will help to prevent this from happening to anyone else,” he continued.
Slager told ABC News he was wearing a costume because he wanted to be more intimidating in his job, which includes making phone calls.
He said he has also had to change the name on his Facebook account, which he said is a pseudonym because he has been a public figure for years.
Slagers mother, Diane Slager-Simmons, told ABC affiliate WPIX-TV in Orlando, Florida, that she was not surprised by the apology.
“I was not expecting this from him, he has done so much for me, my family and my community,” she said.
“I was just surprised at the tone of the apology.”
“It’s not OK to disrespect someone.
I mean, I know you’ve seen that he did this and I think that he’s trying to be a good person,” she added.
