Comedian Chris D’Elia broke a long silence Friday, posting a nearly 10-minute video to his YouTube page to talk about his past behavior.

D’Elia was accused by two women of exposing himself in separate incidents, one in 2011 and one in 2018, with their stories detailed in a report on CNN.com. Earlier D’Elia was accused of soliciting underage girls on social media.

Rideau Hall was 'toxic workplace' with 'screaming, aggressive conduct,' workers told Payette workplace review

  Rideau Hall was 'toxic workplace' with 'screaming, aggressive conduct,' workers told Payette workplace review OTTAWA — People who worked at Rideau Hall allege it was a “toxic workplace” with incidents of “yelling, screaming, aggressive conduct, demeaning comments and public humiliation,” according to a heavily redacted report released by the government Wednesday evening. The workplace review was ordered by the Privy Council Office after it was alleged in the media that former governor general Julie Payette — who resigned on Thursday — had created an atmosphere of verbal abuse and bullying. The redacted version of the report does not disclose details on who is alleged to have committed specific acts. But it draws many larger conclusions about the overall workplace.

“ I know it looks bad ,” he said. “What I have come to understand is, this was always about sex to me. It makes me feel shameful and it makes me feel bad.” D ’ Elia said in his YouTube video that he’s been “doing the work” to be better. The Undateable alum was first accused of sexual misconduct in June 2020. Several women came forward online, accusing him of various things including behaving inappropriately with underage women and allegedly exposing himself to several women.

Узнать причину. Закрыть. Test ( I know it looks bad ). Hello angels in sorry I didn't post a glmv again it's just that I keep forgetting because I downloaded tik tok again and can't stop watching it😅 so I tried to do a little video so I can get a little better at making these so yeah see you next time bye! ❤.

D’Elia admitted in Friday’s video “I know it’s been a really long time since you’ve heard from me,” but said he hoped his prior statements denying the accusations would suffice. “I wanted that statement to speak for itself,” he said, adding that although he wanted to get right back to work, he thought it .”best to take a long, hard look at myself.”

“I do know how it looks with all the stuff that’s been said,” D’Elia said. “I know it looks bad, and it doesn’t show the full scope of what happened.” He claimed, “I stand by the fact that all my relationships have been consensual and legal. That’s the truth.”

However, “sex controlled my life,” he said. “And I have a problem. And I do have a problem…I need to do work on that. ”

Later in the video, he apologized to all who had been caught up in his activities. “I’m sorry.”

In a statement issued when the original accusations surfaced, D’Elia’s representatives sent a statement to Deadline.

“I know I have said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point,” he said. “All of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me. That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who ABSOLUTELY let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That’s MY fault. I own it. I’ve been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better.”

Gallery: Do ‘Bachelor’ Producers 'Manipulate' Contestants? Alums Weigh In (US Weekly)

Benjamin Higgins et al. posing for the camera: It’s safe to say not every Bachelor or Bachelorette contestant has the same journey on the ABC dating show, but some are more vocal about their experience — and the producers. Dylan Barbour, who competed on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette in 2019, made headlines in January for accusations about what goes down behind-the-scenes. In addition to accusing producers of editing the show to “warrant bullying,” alleging that the lead doesn’t have any control over roses and claiming that cast members aren’t allowed to “sleep normal hours,” Barbour wrote that Jed Wyatt was the most “screwed over” cast member on Brown’s season. He concluded that producers “don’t care about people.” Following season 15, Barbour appeared on season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise and met fiancée Hannah Godwin. Two days after his Twitter rant, he deleted his tweets and backtracked. “This past weekend I got into the discussion of being in the public eye and its effects on mental health,” he told Us Weekly in an exclusive statement on February 2. “I’ve seen a lot of people thrust into this level of notoriety, and with it comes immense scrutiny. And those same friends have had their mental health suffer tremendously from it.”     He added: “With that said, I believe the way the message was delivered was wrong. I’m appreciative of the franchise and the platform given to me, and that was not reflected.” While several former contestants have supported Barbour’s claims, other alums, including former leads Ben Higgins, Rachel Lindsay and Arie Luyendyk Jr. have shot down his accusations that the Bachelor or Bachelorette isn’t in control. “I like Dylan. And I know he’s coming from a place where he wants to help. I think it could’ve been done maybe in a little bit of better way. But the show’s been good to me,” the season 20 Bachelor said on the 7:40 Celebrity Lounge in February. “I can’t sit here and say the show hasn’t been good to me, it has. And I think people can argue, ‘Well, of course, the show’s been good to you but it doesn’t mean it’s good to everybody,’ and I agree with that … I know people who have been hurt from it.” Lindsay, the season 13 Bachelorette, suggested that Barbour was just looking for attention. “I never felt manipulated. I never felt like I was being taken advantage of,” the MTV’s Ghosted: Love Gone Missing host told Us in February. “When I see people say that, I’m almost like, ‘That’s on you, that you felt like you fell for that type of scenario. I don’t know if you’re trying to get attention. I’m not sure if, you know, like, you’re trying to excuse some of the decisions you made, but we are all grown people. You made those decisions for whatever reason it is. Don’t try to now go blame it on somebody else.’” Scroll through for more commentary on Bachelor producers from past contestants:
