In other tracking video, Sabina sits in a car and listens to Justin on the radio telling her that she sent him a direct message and apologized for creating the original TikTok and offering to delete it.
âI was doing this TikTok, I was blowing up my own place,â she says, adding that Justin never said his name on the air. “And it blew up, and you were sending him hate, which he didn’t deserve.”
To Justin, she then says “it’s really not that deep”, that he doesn’t have to be her friend and that she will see him around him.

“He first hit you online,” commented @eve_oystem.
“Don’t apologize,” @ kimtoten0 wrote. “Why is he allowed to say what he thinks of you but you are not allowed [to] post it and show him your hurt feelings !! ?? “
âHe chose his platform to hit you, you chose yours,â @ chris111333611 commented. “I don’t see why people are so taken aback by their own actions.”
