In a new video that went viral on Wednesday, the girl expressed her regret for asking for the iPhone at the time and for recording their reactions and sharing it online.

The young girl stated that she hadn’t anticipated it would go viral and gain such widespread attention across the world.

Content Video

She said, “I’m making this video regarding my previous video where I asked my dad for an iPhone 8. I want to publicly admit that what I did was wrong.

“I shouldn’t have asked for the iPhone at that moment, and I shouldn’t have recorded their reactions and posted it.

My thought was that it is just a normal content video; I didn’t know it would go viral.

“I am saying I am really sorry. I don’t expect anybody to drag my parents because of the video. It wasn’t posted for anyone to attack me.”
