In response Mendes stated "A lot of things just need to be moved on from, but I also think that the things that [you] saw, like I had friends when I was 14 who would like take my phone and post things of them because they thought it was funny that I had like 2,000 followers and it was this big thing, and they’d post photos of themselves and at the time I was just like not thinking about it.

But um, yeah totally I apologize for everything insensitive I said in the past, but with that being said yeah I think that’s not my personality."

People have since label his response "Immature and pathetic".
