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!

I am so tired of this kid. Him being 15 is no excuse for his poor behavior. He is rude and disrespectful. These types of teachings should start at home. I agree with "Viewer"' point of view. It is always about the race card. I am always hearing the African Americans cry out about affirmative action. This is getting old. If you want to be treated fairly than do the same to others. If you want to change the way society views you then act with some decency. Have respect for me. For as long as he acts like that, he further can't change how soceity views the black race. He just prouds everyone right. As for LA Reid, let's call it what it is. He voted for his own kind. Masking it with one vote against the whites ( the group) will not hide that he is a racist.

Astro has more talent at such a young. Is he a looser. No! In a year or so, America will know this young man and he will be successful if he drops the attitude and becomes humble. Astro you hold the keys to your future. You got a second chance so go for it. Will you win the competition. Probably not! People are looking at singing not HIP HOP unfortunately. You're getting a lot of exposure, therefore use it to your best advantage. The thing that separates you and Chris Ren'e is that he can sing as well as rap. If you could sing, you would have that X-Factor. You're very talented. DON'T BLOW YOUR LIFE AND YOUR DREAM AWAY!!!!

I feel Astro apologize and that should be it. Do I feel he could have handled it diffrently, of course. But, realize he's 15, arogant and a kid. Sometimes we as adults could give kids a break and this is one of those times. Astro will learn through the years or he will ruin is career. Stacey Frances should have been voted off and by her being 40+ her attitude was just as bad. Should Astro have been in the bottom 2? No. Should he win? No. Astro is atleast on of the top 4 or 5. Unfortunately people vote and they don't really know tallent. Leroy (might be misspelled and Stacey should be in the bottom 2.

This little brat is a "LLOOOSSSEERR!!!" He should have been kicked off that night and shame on the money grubbing judges for keeping him on. They just made a really good example for the rest of the youth on how to act if you're on TV and are about to be voted off! The people voted-give me a break! Shame on you simon, freaky paula and of course l.a. would vote for him. I can't wait until you really get voted off astro-it's coming! In the meantime-x factor has lost more respect and will end up as ridiculous as am idol! Astro-u suck!
