Realizing he may have offended people who are hard of hearing, Chris Pratt found a moving way to say he was sorry, People magazine reports.
In a YouTube video, the 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II' star share apologized in sign language for telling people in a previous post they should turn up the volume rather than use the subtitles.
“When I made a video recently with subtitles, and requested that people turn up the volume and not just ‘read the subtitles’ it was so people wouldn’t scroll past the video on mute, thus watching and digesting the information in the video,” he wrote.
“HOWEVER, I realize now doing so was incredibly insensitive to the many folks out there who depend on subtitles.”
Pratt said he didn’t intend to offend Americans who suffer from hearing loss.
“I have people in my life who are hearing-impaired, and the last thing in the world I would want to do is offend them or anybody who suffers from hearing loss or any other disability. So truly from the bottom of my heart I apologize,” he wrote. “Thanks for pointing this out to me. In the future I’ll try to be a little less ignorant about it.”
