Astro Apologizes for X Factor Outburst

by at . Comments

On last Thursday's X Factor results show, Astro was voted into the bottom two - and then nearly got himself eliminated by initially refusing to sing for the judges' vote. It was a disgraceful show of poor sportsmanship.

But it also came from a young rapper who is only 15 years old, as Astro took to Facebook over the weekend and apologized for acting like a spoiled brat.

"What I do, I do for the love of Hip-Hop and my fans, and I would never doing anything to hurt either," he wrote. "I believed I was being mistreated... My guards are always up, and maybe I took the situation too heavy. I seriously apologize to my fans, what I said and my emotions weren't directed toward you. I'm 15 and I think I know everything, but the truth is, I don't, and I handled the situation wrong! Win or lose next week, I will make you all proud!"

Astro added that he wants to be the "new ambassador" for hip hop, while Simon Cowell said he's met with Astro and his father and everything is "much calmer now."

If true, that's too bad. The X Factor was just getting exciting!
