Ryan's Instagram handle featured a three-minute clip of himself talking to his followers online on the first day of June. He stated that he is all for the African American race, and wouldn't indulge in using racial slurs to belittle people of the race.

Though the actor mentioned that he "misspoke" because of the numerous death threats his family was getting, he listed a group of non-African American entertainers like Cardi B and Fat Joe and how they have all employed the usage of the "N" word without getting trolled online. According to the 9-1-1" star:

"I'm not here to bring anybody down...I apologize for those I have offended and misrepresented myself for using the wrong term... I will continue to grow and continue to help out the community."

This apology comes after Ryan got backlashed for defending Chrysti on Twitter. In the past, his fiancee had used the "N" words, which is derogatory to African Americans when used by another race.

These tweets recently surfaced, but the on-screen star's first reaction was to consider the usage as a typical slang. He quipped that it was not a big deal and that he uses the term "slurs" with close buddies.

Before online critics condemned his behavior, one of his colleagues on "9-1-1," Oliver Starks tweeted that racial slurs are unethical and a no-no. Oliver said:

"I know a lot of you want to hear my thoughts...my opinion is that there is absolutely no excuse for the use of the n-word."

Chrysti also tweeted an apology in a lengthy write-up. She admitted that as a teenager, she didn't know the gravity of the "n" word as she felt comfortable using it since she had many African American friends.

The mother of one explained that since then, she's grown physically and mentally and concluded by committing to stand by the black community, especially in the current fight for equality and fair treatment from law enforcement officials.

Ryan's next update was to announce his donation to an organization that is advancing the black community after he said, "I'm done defending myself or my family."

Though most of his Twitter followers weren't pleased with his apology or donation, some urged him to stick to making things right with a better attitude.
