Leader of the Opposition Apologizes for Behavior in Viral Video

Patrick Faber

Leader of the Opposition Patrick Faber is tonight apologizing to the nation for a viral video in which he is heard acting aggressively towards the mother of his two year old daughter. In the home surveillance footage that was leaked on social media, there is a heated verbal exchange and then the sound of a slamming door.  Faber says he believes his actions are unbecoming of a long-standing leader. And late this evening he issued a video apology.

“As a long-standing public figure, I take it as my duty to act in the manner that is worth emulating by our younger generation who so desperately needs such example. I regret to say that a few weeks ago in circumstance that I will briefly describe, my actions were not fit to be emulated. I allowed myself to react in a manner that certainly did not live up to the tenets and ideals that I embrace. Those who know me know that my children mean the world to me. I have strived over the last sixteen years of parenthood to be all that I can be for my children. Spending time with them therefore is never something optional or something that anyone has to remind me to do. Recent change in my relationship status have unjustly kept me away from my two-year-old daughter. It is my hope that the situation can in short order be remedied in the court. On that day in the video I allowed my emotions to get the better of me. For that, I am very sorry.”
