I was acting on speculations and I want to apologize for doing so."

Now that everything is cleared out, I have already privated my previous livestream since it serves no extra purpose but a means for more division. I wish we can all move forward with a heart of love and forgiveness. Let's build a greater and stronger North America community together!” wrote Dave.
