A man who was captured in a viral video hawking grasshoppers on board Uganda Airlines flight has issued an apology.
In the video that became a web sensation online, the daring man, who has since been recognized as Paul Mubiru, is seen hawking grasshoppers that were inside a polythene pack in the economy class of Uganda Airlines plane that was heading to Dubai.
The video created a public uproar, provoking the Airline to give an assertion.
Following the public uproar, Mubiru has apologized for his conduct, saying the video was intended for comedy purposes on TikTok.
“I am sorry to the fellow countrymen and women, staff of Uganda Airlines, passengers and everyone hurt by the act on board.
“I recorded that video in question not to tarnish or shame the airline but for comedy purposes, specifically TikTok deeds,” Mubiru said in a letter to the Uganda Airlines country manager.
“I continue to send in my apology and I authorize you to make my apology public so that the other parties affected can also forgive me,” he added.
Below is the apology that he issued.
