EastEnders Actor Danny Walters apologized after offensive tweets from his past resurfaced this week.
The 25-year-old actor, Keanu Taylor, is talking about two tweets from his teenage years that were deleted, in which he used homophobic insults while talking to one of his friends before his performance in Benidorm Weather.
"I'm sorry for posting these immature comments to a friend when I was 19," Walters said Thursday (April 18).
"It's not language I'd use now and I'd like to apologize to someone I've offended."
A friend of the actor also told Digital Spy: "Danny is feeling absolutely mortified that something he posted when he was younger came back to bite him. He does not have a bad bone in him."
Walters got involved in some of the EastEndersCentral plots since arriving as part of the Taylor family in the summer of 2017, including a sinister affair with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean).
Keanu only recently returned to the square after being sent off for a dangerous job in Spain by Sharon's husband Phil (Steve McFadden).
He continued to work with Phil, but his alliance was tested last week when Keanu discovered that Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) had wrapped them in a circle of human trafficking.
Next week, Keanu will be in front and center again when he is sent by a desperate Phil to save Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) from sinister hijackers who are holding his ransom.
EastEnders continues on Friday night (April 19) at 8:30 p.m. on BBC One.
