In a video posted onInstagramtoday, Roman declared he’s deleted the offending posts and apologized to fans for his language.
He explained: “I wanted to talk about something I’ve seen a lot of celebrities talking about, and people around the world talking about, and that is the use of language online.
“I went through something terrible with a troll online and it encouraged me to look back and take responsibility to see if I had ever posted anything that could cause harm or offence to someone.
“Being totally honest, I’m shocked and appalled and ashamed to say I did find things.”
Roman insisted he’s a changed person and is “truly, deeply and utterly sorry” for the things he posted in the past.
He went on: “I did find things I ‘ m not at all proud of. I don’t associate myself with that.
