Jackmaster follows up harassment scandal hiatus with statement on self-work and additional apology
Jackmaster, real name Jack Revill, found himself at the center of a scandal when, at a Bristol music festival, he allegedly harassed various staffers sexually and made lewd comments. The episode was exacerbated by the DJ’s inebriation at the time. Following the incident, Jackmaster issued both public and private apologies taking responsibility for his misconduct. A partial hiatus followed.
The producer has since surfaced publicly again to issue a second apology for the incident, while also updating followers on how he’s been working since then to better himself. In his statement on Facebook, he spoke about working through certain triggers in therapy, emphasized that substances are no excuse for his action, and also outlined his efforts in the self care and health department.
Revill also addressed his initial apology around the issue, which he noted was “ambiguous” and catalyzed “untrue rumors” around the events that took place that day.
