On Thursday, the Night School actor went on Instagram to address — but not to apologize for — the controversy.

While he states that he “love[s] everybody,” he feels he should not be accountable for his past actions as people “change, grow, [and] evolve as they get older.”

The 39-year-old wrote:

“Stop looking for reasons to be negative… Stop searching for reasons to be angry… I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in. I am truly happy people… there is nothing that you can do to change that… NOTHING. I work hard on a daily basis to spread positivity to all… with that being said. if u want to search my history or past and anger yourselves with what u find that is fine with me. I’m almost 40 years old and I’m in love with the man that I am becoming. You LIVE and YOU LEARN & YOU GROW & YOU MATURE. I live to Love… Please take your negative energy and put it into something constructive. Please… What’s understood should never have to be said. I LOVE EVERYBODY…. ONCE AGAIN EVERYBODY. If you choose to not believe me then that’s on you…. Have a beautiful day.”
