While the comedian doesn't say exactly why he is apologizing in the new Instagram post, he does admit to hurting "the people closest to me."
"I'm at a place in my life where I feel I have a target on my back and because of that I should make smart decisions, and recently I didn’t," Hart says in the video. "I'm not perfect and I'm not gonna sit up here and say that I am, or claim to be in any way shape or form. And I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that, I know I'm gonna hurt the people closest to me, who I've talked to and apologized to, being my wife and my kids."
"It's a sh*tty moment when you know you're wrong and there's no excuses for your wrong behavior," he continues. "At the end of the day, I just simply got to do better. But I'm also not gonna allow a person to have financial gain off my mistakes. In this particular situation, that's what was attempted. I said I'd rather fess up to my mistakes."
