He added that he “truly” regrets making anyone uncomfortable.

Now, Kim has taken to Twitter to respond.

“It’s curious that Dan has decided to publicly apologize to me – and just me – on the eve of the # Survivor finale for a series of inappropriate incidents that occurred months ago and impacted a number of women on set, “Kim said in a tweet on Tuesday. “I truly hope that some of this self reflection is real and that Dan changes his behavior going forward.”

She added: “For me, this statement only underscores the responsibility of CBS and Survivor to take action to prevent anything like this from ever happening again in the future. “

Kim previously addressedCBSon Twitter, calling them out fornot taking action sooner, as Spilo was not removed from the show until day of filming.

“Tonight” , on CBS Survivor, Dan Spilo was kicked off the show for, once again, inappropriate touching. While Dan’s dismissal has validated the concerns that I raised from the beginning of the season, I wish that no one else had to be subjected to this type of behavior, “she wrote at the time.

Kim continued: “CBS and Survivor were on notice of Dan’s behavior from the very first days of the game. And, as Survivor fans know, shortly after I spoke up on camera, I was voted off the show. Since then, I’ve accepted genuine, heartfelt apologies from fellow castaways, but I’ve continued to feel disappointed by how this pattern of behavior was allowed to occur for so long. “

The former Season 90 competitor said it’s now “most important” to her that CBS, “Survivor” and other organizations, in addition to the public, “decide to learn from this story and commit to take action. “

Thecontroversy arose whenKim, along with several other cast members, expressed concerns that Spilo was “inappropriately” touching them. Though Kim sat down with Spilo to discuss his actions, he continued forward with his invasion of personal space – which ultimately led to an official warning being issued to Spilo from production.

Spilo was eventually removed from the show following another alleged inappropriate conduct incident with a production member. Production sources toldPeopleearlier this week that Spilo’s dismissal occurred because there had been a history of complaints against him.

“If it had been his first strike, I don’t think he would have been removed from the game,” a production source told the outlet at the time. “But the feeling was, ‘It’s time to pull the plug.’ In many ways, this was just the final straw. “

CBS did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Fox News’ Melissa Roberto and Andy Sahadeo contributed to this report.
