Famous TikTok star Tony Lopez, who was called out for sexual misconduct over his tweets, has apologized. Taking to Twitter on Sunday, August 23, Lopez stated, “Hey guys I want to take a minute to address the recent accusations that have been made against me. I am not proud of my past choices and actions, and I am truly disappointed in myself. I am still new to the entertainment/ LA scene, and I am quickly learning that you can’t believe everything that you are told. Once I found out the truth I immediately stopped.”

Mentioning that his actions were highly irresponsible, he said, “I know these actions are not taken lightly and were extremely irresponsible of me. As a young man I will hold myself responsible for this mistake, rather than run from it. I will learn from it to better educate myself for now and future. I promise I will make better informed decisions.”



 

 

The apology came after the young social media star came under fire in August this year as screenshots surfed on social media showing that Lopez appeared to solicit nudes from a 15-year-old girl. In 2019 too, Lopez came under scrutiny after a July tweet where he wrote, “Goodnight to the girls that suck d--- only”, as reported by the Insider. Though he later apologized in a July 10 tweet after a thread showed examples of his past language. "Just wanted to apologize for any old childish tweets that I made 5–6 years ago if I offended anyone I apologize deeply, it offends me reading those now as well. I know people are gonna keep talking about it," he said.



 

 

After such controversies, beauty and spa brand, Bliss Spa, said that the brand would no longer collaborate with the star who has a whopping 22.2 million followers on TikTok. The brand mentioned, "We take these accusations seriously and will not work with Tony Lopez going forward. We're committed to working with partners who uphold our brand values,” as quoted by the Insider.

The controversies and accusations did not end there. Lopez in June has been accused of stealing another TikToker’s dance as reported in the Distractify website. The other TikToker goes by the name of Jiada with handle @ouuitzjaidaa. Though not as serious as sexual messages, such accusations maligned Lopez's image. As he has again served an apology taking responsibility for his actions, the Internet still seems unconvinced. But Lopez's fans are glad that he “owned up mistakes”. A fan wrote, “Tony, I appreciate you owning up to your mistakes. people are gonna hate regardless but there are so many ppl that still support you as a person.I love you.”



 

 

Another concurred, “It's okay Tony we all make mistakes, if what you did was wrong but now you apologized and you are going to grow from your mistakes, we will always be here for you. We love you and idc what other people say HATE ME if you want to idc.” 



 

 

Many feel that he must not have a platform anymore for his videos. “He shouldn’t have a platform.”



 

 

Enraged users trended #tonylopezisoverparty and wrote, “don't you think it's a bit late for this."



 

 

Some want to see him in jail. “This man is disgusting and needs to go to jail.”



 

 

One tweeted, “cancel tony Lopez for asking 16 yo girls to send him nudes not for doing weird dances.”



 

 

A user mentioned that many people might not be able to understand the depth of the problem. “I mean... His fanbase is literal children. I don't think most kids of that age are able to comprehend how messed up the situation actually is. I know I didn't when I was 13-17 and even at 18 I dated a grown-ass man. I thought I was "special.”
