Admitting When I'm Wrong.

čas přidán 27. 11. 2020
Thank you for hearing me out. I made a mistake and I apologize. Do not let my lapse in judgement be used to hurt the science behind masks and the other COVID-19 mitigation measures. Here are some links to accurate info from the CDC on the subject. (Update: I've tested negative x3 for COVID-19 since)

  • It's one thing to make a mistake, this was just incredibly self serving and hypocritical. To think I'd actually admire you as not just another influencer, but someone who understood his platform and the power he held. So much for that.

  • Doctor Mike, I love your videos but this is quite unprofessional, especially as a influencer and doctor. I 'm not one do be disappointed in you but I kinda am. You should've posted this on your main channel too. This is a important video and yet you posted it on your "blog" channel or what ever. Really unprofessional. I hope that you truly learn from your mistakes. I'm finished being a mom now.

  • Okay, I’m a new viewer. And I’m reading through these comments and I’m shocked. Here is this poor guy who is honestly apologizing. You can see it on his face. People only call it “justification” when they don’t agree with ones apology. That doesn’t make his apology insincere... He’s a doctor, yes. He’s an “influencer” yes. He’s a human being who inevitably will make mistakes, YES. I’m sorry, Dr. Mike. I’m sorry that being in the spot light the way that you are leads to people being mean and expecting perfection. People need to be more forgiving.

    • i totally agree with you, too many people are mentally damaged and stressed out from working without breaks. if he wanted to go out with friends to relax from his job then he is allowed to, just as long as he is safe about it. these people have no right to call him names when they themselves have probably done the same thing with no safety. i feel sorry that you had to see trolls as a new viewer, those people do not represent his community as a whole

  • Yeah, You REALLY messed up. I just can't believe you actually thought you were comfortable with this birthday boat party guidelines. That part of the video is so far-fetched - I didn't believe that for a moment. Because you are young, handsome, "live in the fast lane" and presume to be untouchable ... you probably thought you wouldn't get caught...but you did. If this video didn't go public - you would still be hiding the fact that you "don't practice what you preach." Would you have told this story even if there wasn't a video? So upset by this. You need to grow-up, do better and get some new friends.

  • Dr Mike is hypocrite, democrat . He wants to shut down the restaurant business , economy while he went out party with a big group . He is another Nancy pelosy . Thats disgraceful

    • lol, says the sore loser karen. lay off the drugs ok? 😘

  • You are only sorry because you got called on it. If nobody said anything you wouldnt have apologized. What a jerk. Doctors know better

  • Show of hands, who has broken guidelines? AND Has family

  • I just found your channel and now I am so disappointed...

  • What a hypocrite and a coward. Dr Mike people are dying and are still not able to see their immediate family. Shame on you.

  • I want to know whether the women in the picture are strippers or they just wanted to be there.

  • Oh wow, when did the likes and dislikes get disabled?

    • sadly it got disabled because people were being too rude and not understanding the situation.

  • Hello everyone, I have been reading all the disappointed comments but just say that u haven't done something wrong ever the truth and I will say u r right but here is my opinion: I know and understand some of ur situations and let me tell u this everyone makes mistakes! Not to offend anyone but Dr. Mike is a human too and he makes mistakes too and saying stuff like this is rude cuz like I said every one makes mistakes and what was he supposed to do it was a surprise party plus he followed protocols and he apologised. Some of you say that he is justifying himself and I say he has all the right to do so. I know this happened quite a while ago and I'm kind of late to this situation but when I see something I find somewhat rude I have to let someone know this is what I think. Dr. Mike gave an explanation and admitted he was wrong what more would y'all want!? Reminder: I'm not trying to offend anyone it's just my opinion and I hope I changed someone's mind.

  • I’m not into cancel culture. I’ve been following Dr. Mike for quite some time. He’s informative. No matter how the party went down or whatever. It was foolish. Doesn’t make everything he’s ever said wrong or a lie. He went against his own advice. I’ve gone against my own advice a thousand times. It’s called being human. Cancel culture is becoming an industry. There’s actually a video of a body language specialist determining if his apology is sincere..just why? So many holier than thou opportunists out there.

    • i saw the video of the body language guy one time, he seems like a hack. thought i would never see the day when a self-proclaimed specialist judges a doctor based on one mistake but here i am. him and everyone else has to realize that no one is perfect, we are bound to make mistakes and apologizing for that mistake is normal

  • I know that this is a month after post, I just want to say that I’m a little sad. Sure, Being safe about it is definitely being smart. But that doesn’t mean you should do it. I haven’t seen my friends normally for a year, and my childhood might never be the same. However, staying at home will allow others following to have one with others. Even if I’m a minor, I think of this no less than my parents. Thank you for apologizing. Please stay home.

  • Man you guys are slaying him like you guys are soooooo perfect bruv he's trying to apologize even though he is famous it doesn't mean he is not a human

  • No one is perfect. Everyone condemning Mike for his mistake is acting like they've never made a mistake. And while this still doesn't excuse Mike due to him advocating to social distance and not party but then doing it anyways (even though he followed the guidelines). He's still human. You might believe a certain way and take the best precautions for safety (but there's always a small chance of infection) and he choose to have fun with his friends. I agree that because of his huge following, he should've did something smaller and more private but people will crucify him cause he wasn't perfect. But people make mistakes. And I bet people who have condemned Mike haven't social distance 100% of the time either due you "knowing" this person is safe cause I've been with him/her before and I'm fine.

  • Why isn't this on your main channel, doctor? Too scared people would finally recognize your performative activism? Or too scared of losing your big bucks and endorsements? I'm so disappointed Dr. Mike.

  • At least it you could post this on your main channel 😟

  • A lot of you sound like you're taking you're anger out of him. Given what happened I think we all would have done the same. If my parents surprised us with a log cabin with more than enough room for me and my extended family we probably would have ran with it. Happily ate with our family, watched movies, played games, hell even played games. It sounds like a dream come true especially since we haven't seen or been with one another since February, people we used to spend sundays with, people who always spend time with us and who were always there when we needed them. We can be mad at him all we want, but we would have all done the same if we could. He looks almost happy at mentioning his friends, their surprise for him. He was happy at that moment and forgot about the pandemic in that moment. He was human and made a human mistake.

  • all good bro ur a good person and and everyone in the comments fuck u

  • Look we all are human and we all make mistakes no one is perfect so I wish people who are making a huge deal out of this would just learn to forgive and forget.

    • i agree, theres a bigger problem than just one guy making a mistake, and people need to realize it before its too late. he isnt perfect and thats fine by me. being a doctor is already stressful enough for him and people insulting him and wanting to cancel him makes his life more stressful, which is never a good thing. im glad there are people like you who support him even though he made a mistake, gives me some hope for humanity and it shows who his real fans are

  • I used to love watching his videos, but now I feel like it's just not worth it anymore. I have no respect for this boy now. Also, I wonder how he would feel knowing that animals, including dogs like his Bear, can get covid.. I hope he learns from this and does better in the future. Now I'm worried for his puppy..

  • Shame that you did not practice what you preach. This act gives anti vaxxers voice. Plus shame on you on not uploading this on main channel and hiding like and unlike number to hide that people did not like this apology. Sorry not accepting your apology it does not look sincere. You guys literally put a lot of people in danger.

  • Just saw the title and thumbnail for a video about him being a hypocrite. Didn't watch it, though. Then saw this. Then saw the channel title and bbn wondered why he changed his channel name. Then realized he didn't. Watch his main channel pretty regularly, and didn't even know this one existed. Not gonna lie...feeling a bit let down.

  • Ok , he is and hypocrite but people makes mistakes it is normal I forgive you but do not do it again please

  • Geez , how am I barley seeing this now? Do the right thing and take accountability on your main channel, where everyone will see. You spoke about risks? You yourself were not at risk- yes. but , the potential risk of spreading this virus to those TRULY at risk is not something that should be taken lightly.. you work with general public for goodness sake. This goes beyond practicing what you preach. That being said, nobody is perfect. You aren’t hated. But this world needs more accountability, own it on the proper platform.

  • Listen next time just do better, we all make mistakes. But it does look hella sus When for the past eight months you’ve been saying to do a zoom party but then YOU can go to a real party boat with a bunch of Instagram models in Miami , Come on man

  • So the like to dislike ratio is hidden, huh? No worries dude, I'll just up vote all the comments calling you out.

    • “ up vote “ REDDIT MOMENT KEANU CHUNGUS WHOLESOME 100 THANKS FOR THE GOLD KIND STRANGER WE DID IT REDDIT

  • Masks don't work see Danish mask study

  • UNSUBSCRIBE

  • I am struggling to want to keep engaging with your content again. People certainly make mistakes, including hypocrisy, but this barely seems like an apology given that the first half is just justifications, you've hidden this away on your MUCH smaller channel and you demonstrably did not follow guidelines (nevermind your own advice) for anyone who looks at the photos and can count into double digits. This just seems like a "I'm sorry...errr...(for getting caught)." There are millions of people who in similar moments also think that the rules don't apply to them and that's where you've been the voice that may have swayed some to think twice and do better. But when you've chosen to be in the public space with a position of authority and do the opposite of what you urge others to do, you've destroyed the merit of your words and instead show people that "oh it's actually okay to make this exception for myself".

  • 😒

  • And now the likes and dislikes are disabled? Well Mike, I’ve followed you since your pro/anti vax middle ground reaction video, but I think I’ve watched my last video on your channel. And it really breaks my heart to say goodbye to someone I adored and respected so much, especially someone so heroic to save a passenger on a Trans-Atlantic flight. Stay happy and healthy. Goodbye.

  • The thing is Dr Mike, U will get forgiven but not forgotten. Its ok to make mistakes. not an issue as everyone's involved is safe. but our every mistakes comes with hefty price. Though ur forgiven, u probally lost all the trust and respect to some, Hopefully u will recover it soon. I wish u all the best in life👍

  • As much as everyone is bashing him saying his apology wasn’t sincere or why is this not on his main channel yes he’s a health care professional but he’s also a human and humans are careless regardless of the profession you’re in ok he had a party and didn’t follow safety guidelines are we all gunna stand there and say we’ve been following these guidelines perfectly ourselves?

    • he is not perfect, no one is. and for the ones that tell him to do better don't even know what he goes through, being a doctor is already a stressful job because people are putting their lives in someone else's hands but to insult someone because they made one mistake is unforgivable. they need to look within themselves and ask if they would also apologize if they were in this situation, and I'm pretty sure some of them would refuse.

  • Okay... after looking up pictures from the incident I have to say I’ve lost a lot of respect and trust in him

  • Live your life

  • Dissapointed

  • Why this is still not on main channel

  • I'm understand it's his life and everything, do whatever you want, even parties.. but when he says to us that we should stay at home, while he does not respect that, does the opposite, so he's basically lying... I don't like that. No-one does. Dislike

  • Oh. I see Dr. Mike had done well to bury this fiasco. This happened a year ago and I'm only now getting to know about it. Sorry man but this isn't an apology, its you trying to justify your mistake.

  • Lmao disabled the likes and dislikes

  • Video: 4 minutes, probably not a clip. Posted: Clips channel Me: Makes sense

  • I really appreciate your honesty, it has been hard for everyone especially medical professionals to stay socially isolated in their personal life because they know what the impact may be. Everyone makes mistakes and learning from them and owning up to them is the most important thing ♥️

  • Did youtube stop showing the number of likes and dislikes on this video?

  • It takes years to build your reputation and one moment to ruin it. All it takes is one wrongdoing.

  • Bruh if I get invited to a party on a YACHT, there is no way I’m not going.

  • Everyone in the comments acting like they’ve never made a mistake in their lives. We all mess up! The big thing head is you recognize it, and you are striving to do better 🥰much appreciated, 2”we are only human, we all make mistakes

  • The hypocritical liberal left at it again.

  • Dr. Mike you're literally fine

  • there are sometimes that even people who are an example to follow make mistakes and it is normal because we are all human

  • *Removes like/dislike numbers* Next step removes comment section

  • Dr mike we are all human and we make mistakes but from mistakes we learn

  • Don't you guys think that we should get over that controversy and move on? Everyone makes mistake, maybe this mistake was huge. Doc made a huge mistake and disappointed his fans, but he is just being polite and trying to apologize. Let's give him another chance. He's a human too, plus he and others have been tested negative for the virus. Maybe his actions might've left a huge impact on the society, but all of us present here have literal common sense right? People knowing the risk factors of this pandemic are using this guy to enjoy themselves! Even if he didn't make those mistakes there were so many people who tried to spread rumors! Now, He's got what he deserved, LETS FORGIVE HIM AND MOVE ON.

  • Im not even disappointed for what he did, he is human, made a mistake. I am disappointed because how he dealt with this, just man up, dont make any excuse and actually apologize in your main channel.

    • @Rui Costa yeah right, he already apologized so what else do you want from him? he's not gonna post it on his main channel just because someone told him to do it, that's not how it works. he's already done enough from this apology alone so all that he needs to do now is make sure he doesn't make the same mistake again

    • @deejrdee1 Cause in life its ok for you to mess up but you need to own it and not bullshiting

    • @Rui Costa if you really cared, why are you harassing him? just move on because he already said what he needed to say, regardless of what channel the video goes to

    • @deejrdee1 Yeah maybe you are right, but i care. Even if my opinion doesnt matter to you, that okay! It matters to some people and im free to say whatever i want even if people like you dont care(even tho you care enough to comment)

    • no one cares 🙄

  • Thank you Doctor Mike - I look forward to more of your videos as you continue to be a source of information and hope to those of us who will continue to watch.

  • I’m pretty sure Doctor Mike, is any other normal human being. He needs time to relax. If he went to a party without social distancing, everyone should’ve been tested to see if they were positive. He is a doctor. He isn’t some uneducated or in knowledgeable person. If he gives so much news about covid, only for you to think he dropped all those advices just because he went to a party, he might as well be a hypocrite. Doctors, are humans too. And humans, make mistakes. Luckily for him, this isn’t a big problem as nothing bad really happened. Doctor Mike should not be criticised for only one mistake he made, when human beings aren’t always perfect, especially Doctors.

  • So disappointed to first hear about his ignorant conversation with Philip DeFranco about Muslim and Sikh people and then to see his hypocrisy with this situation. CS-tv really teaches me that if somebody seems too good to be true, watch out.

    • @Damian Araya because im tired of assholes thinking they are perfect. let him have his apology and move on

    • @deejrdee1 You respond to all the critics of Dr. Mike? let people have their own opinion.

    • your attitude seems too good to be true, guess i should avoid people like you then

  • Can't even see like to dislike ratio. Make a better apology and put it on the main channel. Stop being a coward.

    • it was more dislikes than likes...he removed it lol

  • I look up to you Dr. Mike! I am incredibly disappointed on all the people who pretend to be by your side, but don’t hesitate in criticizing you and your one mistake. One thing you have done wrong and suddenly you went from their “hero” to zero... I am impressed by how easily all the good deeds a person carries out are pushed to the sidelines by ONE MISTAKE! I am certain that every single person who wrote a hateful comment has committed more than one mistake, but not nearly as many have your courage to say “I MESSED UP”. For that, and so many more things, I admire you Dr Mike.

  • MAN DISABLED COMMENTS

  • Guys yes he should wear a mask the doctor professionals even say the corona isn't even that bad. I have family member who are old and ill and got sick with covid they were fine. I got sick and was fine yes people have died but the flu has killed more. Covid is more contagious and you should wear a mask but its really not that serious and we shouldn't be shutting anything down. Its proven to be bad for the economy. Millions will die from economy failure and that will happened if we all keep going crazy over an advanced flu and shutting everything down. One mistake he makes and all the toxic cancel culture already down his throat is everyone seriously that bored?

  • I have seen the pictures that came out you are irresponsible and I’m disgusted that I looked up too you

  • Clearly, you simply don't get it. Or, do you? What you're trying to spray-away isn't the real problem. The greater stench is your attempt to distract peoples' thinking away from the fact that by your very actions you've proven that you know this whole scamdemic/plandemic isn't real! Seriously, it's time to put down the shovel and get dressed. You are the Emperor.

  • Can you post this to your main channel..

  • I’ve been a fan of you for so long.. I’m disappointed.

  • It's impossible to be quarantined for a full year . U are human , no person can be isolated without human contact for months on end . Every person deserves a break from the isolation of life . Your birthday ? U were safe, u acted in accordance with the guidelines . U A doctor , u can't function going from your morbid workplace to home day in day our for months on end without a break. I'm at the point of crazy , I need to be at the beach, I need to see people outside of isolation , even if it's just for one day , few hours . Being a doctor is a morbid experience since March, then isolation and then work, as a Dr, u need a time out from the morbid daily life .. It's not a crime that u had one day of fun as it was ur birthday and u guys were clearly safe . Opening yourself up for criticism is ridiculous, u human and irs not a mistake to have a day of fun , ur profession is a morbid right now , there is just hardships being a doctor right now .. Every doctor and nurse have a right to a day of sunshine and some friends , for the sake of your mental well being as a doctor, it's important u take time out from the morbid pattern that has clouded the lives of health care workers in the last year. To be an effective doctor , your mental health is important.,

  • You where very very close. Very close and you make excuses and you are a doctor that sees patients 🤦. You messed up. You fell because of the social pressure kind off.... I am really surprised you still have your job but you are not the only one that says one thing and then goes somewhere without a mask or breaks the quarantine. All of us make mistakes....

  • best part is masks don't work, he proved it. If this disease was so deadly and the mask was 100% effective, no smart doctor would just "not wear one"

    • That’s just false. Masks r very helpful. He didn’t wear one at the time because of a lack of judgment. You can’t claim that masks don’t work based on an Instagram photo without consulting various scientific, peer-reviewed studies.

  • Why do you guys care about his life so much get a life

  • You call him a hypocrite but all of you not accepting his genuine apology, are the same who have done mistakes over and over. He literally spoke about his mistake and how his actions impact not only his genuine friendships and connections but all the others he impact on the media. He even takes a stand to take on his mistake as his error but to not go against the science. You all are pathetic, like if you never done anything wrong in life

  • Not you turning off the like and dislike.

  • This guy should be a politician. Rules for thee but not for me.

  • Ya'll just stop. Have you never made a mistake in your life? Are you perfect? Why are people so quick to judge but when they mess up they're begging people to forgive them. He's helped a lot of people in his field and one slip up and suddenly it all accounts for nothing? I'm not saying what he did was right, but I think we've ridiculed the guy enough.

  • Takes away likes and dislikes cause of the overwhelming amount of dislikes. Smh.

  • Let's get something straight: Dr. Mike sees patients VIRTUALLY during the pandemic.

  • I wonder why I can't find my earlier comment about him disabling the like/dislike buttons.

  • Dr Mike can do nothing wrong 😘

  • Love how he made us not see how many dislikes he got on that.

  • I'm wondering how many people criticizing him also were on partys, also invited friends and family over to dinner or have made other mistakes. None of that is okay in the current situation I want to make that clear. However, us humans are not always rational and logical. Our emotions oftentimes gets in the way. I think you made the right decision on sharing this apology, Mike. I'm convinced you're sorry and I'm sure you learned something from all this. Even if it's the old saying "practice what you preach" or "your actions have consequences". Being a public figure people tend to be a lot more judgemental towards you, but I'm sure you're aware of that.

  • Mate, you're so gassed. You're fit though see you on the main channel lol

  • I wish he would have posted it on his main channel.

  • i've been saying this for a while, you're not sorry, you're sorry *you got caught!* hypocrite

  • still not sorry huh? bye felicia

  • So nice of you to have such a small channel for apologies.

  • I agree with those saying that he's being judged a little harshly. I mean everyone has a right to their own opinion and I respect that. Yes, he shouldn't have done it...I agree with that. But I'm just not going to totally write him off because of it...maybe because I don't really "look up" to him, I just enjoy watching his videos. He entertains me and that's the extent of it.

    • @Preston Hong idk. Maybe, maybe not. But I really don't care. How others might treat me doesn't define how I treat them.

    • Does this guy really come of as someone who would show you any mercy if you were the one apologizing?

  • I have zero sympathy for his apology when millions of people are dying from covid and he’s a doctor partying without a mask when he’s suppose to stay home and not risk his life lmao! I can’t-

    • @Joe Chill he is? quite a weird thing to do. then again, what you just said wasn't any better, he's probably defensive because people are being rude and acting like they can do nothing wrong. if that's not the definition of hypocritical then i don't know what is

    • @deejrdee1 I see ur aggressively defending Mike everywhere. either ur Dr mike himself or just getting paid for it?? Look Sir, we know nobody's perfect. but in his videos, he clearly preached us about not to succumb to the peer pressure, a hard NO for party/gatherings, to use mask everywhere. People are mad bcoz he isn't just a celebrity but a medical frontliner who knows better and understands it's seriousness and consequences too than any of us. that's the reason people are harsh on him. It's a hypocrite thing and not easily forgivable.

    • @Aang anyways, he apologized and that's all that matters. let's all move on and let him grow

    • @deejrdee1 🙆🏻‍♂️ hi hospital! Don’t kick me out yet if I start spitting out the ugly truth please. 💁🏻‍♂️ sarcasm

    • @Aang then you aren't going to be allowed into any hospitals but you do you 🤷🏾‍♂️

  • This is an excuse video, not really an apology video. The people I look up to on CS-tv has become one person less. It's the usual "I'm sorry but ...".

  • Like nobody here has never made a mistake. Keyboard warriors..

  • I prefer Dr. Grande for sincerity and advice.

  • This apology should be on is main channel his 6.6 million followers sees it. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Hey man, you still haven't given people a real apology. Do it on your main channel

  • Point me out he who has no faults in life.

  • Look guys. Doctors may have degrees and may seem perfect, but we all make Mistakes!! Please don’t “cancel” him out. We are ALL HUMAN AND WE ARE ALL GOING CRAZY IN THIS HORRIBLE PANDEMIC! We all are going to break Character. I agree this was wrong! He shouldn’t have done that as it isn’t safe. BUT PLEASE, Please have mercy on him and other people in the world. He may have messed up, but he knows it. I feel bad for social media celebrities. Because even if they mess up, everyone attacks them and we forget they are HUMAN BEINGS! If a normal person messed up, we wouldn’t care much. But since it’s a celebrity, we have to “cancel them” and make their lives hell! Remember, we are human beings!

  • “I’m sorry, I messed up. I’m human.” Yeah, but as someone who is also in the medical field (not a doctor, however) you were armed with ALL of the facts. You KNEW. You have a deeper understanding of these things than most. And you still chose to go on that boat. This apology doesn’t cut it. The majority of us have been dying for a break from this draining career we took, and hoping our coworkers are being responsible. I don’t want to hear hyoid justify getting on a party boat with a bunch of girls I am going to reduce to Instagram “models”. How disappointing. Another doctor who isn’t actually so grounded in reality.

    • @I Like Birds not really, it doesn't matter where it goes just as long as he apologized, hes fine. I'm just glad he didnt get sick because we have way too many people lost from the virus, so our main focus should be trying to find a cure and not harassing a doctor about a video

    • @Caroline Wilder true, that would feel like a more genuine apology

    • @Aqua CrimeFighter true but it’s already been done

    • @I Like Birds he could have **not done this in the first place**. He knew better.

    • @I Like Birds He can post this on his main channel, donate to covid-19 research, and not given excuses in his apologies are some of my ideas

  • The right thing to do is to not go to the party in the first place. Looking up the guidelines is you trying to justify that what you want to do is okay. It’s alright. If you only messed up once, fellow humans are willing to accept your apology, but in nature, you mess up once, somebody will come and eat you.

  • You should check out this article “32 Cases Of Ableism People Have Actually Experienced That Will Make You Wanna Scream” on Buzzfeed. I think it could make for an interesting vid topic. I work in the medical field and hear things like this all the time from people who just expect to be ignored because of past experiences.

  • Wow what a smug, disgusting justifications of your actions. Spin this however you want, that is not an apology sir.

  • Is it me or there is this trend from influencers to issue rather plain and empty "apologies" lately ?
