There is a lot of drama surrounding Justin Sun this week and rightly so. The TRON CEO has cancelled his lunch after falling ill with kidney stones but as previously reported by CryptoDaily, it seems there’s a twist in the tale.
Well, I woke up today and there seems to be yet ANOTHER twist in said tale.
Just hours ago, Sun posted a statement on Weibo and apologised for the whole situation between the TRON community and Chinese authorities for “vulgar hype and marketing behavior.” Shortly afterwards though, the founder deleted the message.
Translated by the Chinese correspondent for CryptoSlate, the full message went something like this:
“Dear Friends, In the past few weeks, I had my darkest moment with sickness and tiredness. I suffered the biggest drama ever in my life from people’s doubting and questioning. I didn’t sleep all night yesterday, and deeply reflected on my memories and was introspective for my behavior and words—I felt ashamed for my over-marketing. I want to deeply apologize to the public, media, leaders, and the related regulatory authority who cared about me.
I bought the Warren Buffett lunch because I admire him a lot and I have a huge passion for charity. The original reasons are good and simple. I cannot deny that I also want to promote blockchain related business at the same time. However, because of my immature words, behavior, youth, and vigor, I spoke without thinking twice. It became a failing of over-marketing that was out of my control. It also generated an unexpected outcome for me. I ignored the responsibility of being a public figure. This was not my original intent.
