Charlie Puth has apologised after slamming Justin Bieber inside a foul-mouthed outburst during his concert in Dallas, Texas, on Friday.
Following a rendition of his track We Don't Talk Anymore, which features Justin's ex Selena Gomez on vocals, Charlie shouted, "F**k you, Justin Bieber," into a shocked audience.
Now, the See You Again hitmaker has experimented with make amends by posting a prolonged apology message on Twitter.com. However, he later deleted the tweets.
"I am a huge @JustinBieber fan and I do not have anything but excellent achievements to say about him with his fantastic music always,” See you again singer reportedly wrote in the series of messages on Saturday. "Please believe it is in your heart to forgive me and realize that this is from the real place. I am not an average person.
"I am very sorry if I offended anyone, and mostly to Justin. His jobs are inspiring. I would never intentionally or publicly bash him. I was bullied where such things as this were told me on a regular basis, essentially all of my well being until the end of senior high school."
HollywoodLife.com also report that Charlie wrote a lengthier apology he posted down the line the social networking site, which read: "Hi everyone. I wanted to pay off something up. I tweeted this early this morning, but I thought it could be much more effective if I wrote this a single cohesive note rather than a group of tweets.
"What I said in the concert about Love Yourself singer last week was supposed to be lighthearted, and sounded so in my mind in the time, essential hearing it now it sounded mean and uncalled for, that this was.
"My goal in everyday life as a person so when an artists is always to never exchange hateful vernacular between other artists, or anyone for example. The thematic and lyrical element that is in the song I wrote entitled ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ hits not far from home in my opinion and I let my emotions receive the best of me yesterday evening mid song.
"I hope his fans can accept my apology and be aware that people make mistakes and that I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t make any. I deeply apologize for my words."
Both apologies have recently been deleted, with no mention of the outburst is featured on his Twitter feed. Charlie, who performed See You Again in the Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday with Wiz Khalifa, later thanked his fans after he won the Favourite Collaboration honour to the song.
"WOW! Thank you Kid's Choice. What an honor! Thank you," he wrote. "It's crazy that I spent my youth watching The Kids Choice Awards eating pizza on my small couch now I just played into it with Wiz."
