Foster The People’s Mark Foster has shared a heartfelt apology to Imagine Dragons for his previous comments, praising Dan Reynolds for his humanitarianism.
Last year, Foster made a dig at the band, making a joke to iHeartRadio that he gives Foster The People’s rejected tracks to Imagine Dragons. Now, Foster has taken back his comments and has issued a public apology to Imagine Dragons and Dan Reynolds.
“I have been burdened by something I feel I need to amend,” he wrote on Twitter. “I would like to apologize to Dan Reynolds and his band Imagine Dragons. In a passing moment last year, I let some words come out of my mouth that don’t reflect who I am, or what I stand for.
“Everything that I have read about what Dan is doing as a humanitarian is moving. I believe he’s one of the good guys. It takes a lot of courage to stand for something…nobody has ever erected a statue of a critic.”
He then concluded: “Anybody who is trying to make the world more beautiful opens themselves up to criticism. Keep fighting the good fight, Dan. You have my pledge to work alongside you if you ever need a hand. Much respect to you and continued success in your music.”
Reynolds has since responded to the message saying “this means quite a lot to me” and that he has “nothing but love and support” to Foster and his band. The dragon added: “You didn’t have to put together something classy like this but it’s rad you did. Come over here and sit next to me (doo doo doo!).”
How wholesome is that?
