LGBTQ+ nightclub receives apology after open letter to man who trashed venue

A man thought to be a ‘troglodyte’ who caused more than £1,000 damage to a Middlesbrough nightclub has come forward to apologize.

A small nightclub on Albert Road struck earlier this month after a reveler caused extensive damage including ripped out light fixtures, dented walls and a smashed photo booth screen.

After highlighting the damage on social media, LGBTQ+ club bosses say the shameful culprit has now said sorry.

A follow-up statement on their Facebook page said: “The man explained that it was not in his nature at all and that he had simply gotten too drunk and made stupid mistakes. Thanks for the concern of all.”

“And thank you sir for coming too. It must not have been easy, and we think you are sincerely sorry. Appreciate the honesty.”

With the new social media post came floods of comments, with Facebook users praising the man for coming forward.

One user said: “Amazing this is great news and I definitely thank the man for coming forward and admitting his mistakes.”

While another said: “It’s amazing guys, it’s good that he came and raised his hand. Too many people would have just ignored the message and laughed at it.”

“It took him a long time to do this and credit where it was due, but it shouldn’t have happened in the first place.”
