Britney then sticking to the format of her show asks Cruz, “Would you like to apologize?” “Absolutely. I deeply regret my actions over the last couple days. Mostly flying United. I’m sorry. I’m pretty bad at human stuff,” replies Cruz. Britney quickly asks Cruz, “Why people are calling you a coward, to which 'Cruz' answers, “Coward’ is the nicest word I heard. But let me ask you this. Would a coward have the cojones to blame his actions on his young daughters?”
