The story became viral and Kevin made an apology.
I honestly do not remember the encounter as it would have been over 30 years ago. However, I owe him the sincerest apology if I have behaved as he describes as it would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior. And I am sorry for the feelings he described having carried with him all these years.”
He said that the story has encouraged him to address other things in his life. He knows there are other stories out there about him and some have been fueled by the fact that he have been so protective of his privacy.
