It seems everyone and their mother has taken in the Manti Te'o recently released on Netflix documentary, “Untold: The Girlfriend that didn’t Exist.” Now Te’o issued a statement of sorts regarding all of the positive feedback he’s received since the documentary went public.
Te’o took to his personal Instagram account to thank all of the well-wishers and those who offered apologies for things they may have said previously. Here is what Te’o said in full earlier this week.
“I just want to come on here real quick, just to give a heartfelt thank you to everybody that has come through and has shown so much love to me and my family, for your messages, for your comments,” Te’o said in the video. “I’m trying to go through all of them, and it’s been so amazing to me to hear the battles that we’re all facing, the challenges that we’re facing in our lives at this time, and how the documentary has given some of us hope, the extra push just to keep going.”
Te’o seems happy on social media these days as he’s married to a beautiful wife and has a gorgeous young daughter.
To quote Red about his friend Andy in Shawshank Redemption: “Andy Dufresne (Manti Te’o in this case) – who crawled through a river of —- and came out clean on the other side!”
