The clip has been used to highlight crowds of spring break revelers defying stay-at-home suggestions – which have since turned into stay-at-home orders for several states. The video aired on various national media outlets, including in a story March 19 on NBC’s "Today" show. His quote also has appeared in USA TODAY and The Washington Post.

Sluder said in his apology that he was feeling "invincible" like many others his age. The disease appears deadliest to the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions, which has led some young adults to falsely assume they can't get seriously ill from it.

"Our generation may feel invincible, like I did when I commented, but we have a responsibility to listen and follow the recommendations in our communities," Sluder wrote. "I will continue to reflect and learn from this and continue to play for our well-being. I deeply apologize from the bottom of my heart for my insensitivity and unawareness of my actions.”

He said he doesn't want to endanger the elderly and other at-risk people in his life. 

In the caption for his post, he added: “I’m not asking for your forgiveness or pity. I want to use this as motivation to become a better person, a better son, a better friend, and a better citizen…Don’t be arrogant and think you’re invincible like myself.”
