He explained that though he enjoys sharing his thoughts and pieces of his life with his followers, it was necessary for him to take a step back and reflect on his mistake. “I blew it,” he said. “Anyway, gonna take a little break. And look inward.”

Shep’s show of remorse was a stark change from his attitude earlier this week. In the video, he told the unidentified woman, “Look at me, nice cans! I mean, the cans you have.” After uploading the clip, he refused to apologize even amid backlash.

When one fan called for him to be fired from Bravo, Shep responded, “Always get a chuckle when people try to send me to the principal’s office. I bet you were a scream in high school!”

“Omg. I offended you! Ok. Here’s the plan, sensitivity training 5 times a week,” he sarcastically wrote in another tweet. “Then intensive therapy (hot yoga?) followed by a public flogging in the town square. Then I move to Siberia and live in an igloo for 4 months. At this point. I think I’ll be cleansed of your disapproval.”
