Spurlock continued, “You see, I’ve come to understand after months of these revelations, that I am not some innocent bystander, I am also a part of the problem.”

Spurlock concluded with, “I am part of the problem. We all are. But I am also part of the solution. By recognizing and openly admitting what I’ve done to further this terrible situation, I hope to empower the change within myself. We should all find the courage to admit we’re at fault. More than anything, I’m hopeful that I can start to rebuild the trust and the respect of those I love most. I’m not sure I deserve it, but I will work everyday to earn it back. I will do better. I will be better. I believe we all can.”
