"This apology annoys me. And as sincere as it is, I hate that you didn’t apologise to DJ Lag first. You didn’t make him the priority of the apology statement. You guys better pay him his share, you’ve disrespected him enough."

"You're not sorry because it was wrong, you're sorry because you got caught. We see you."
