“I went through something terrible with a troll online and it encouraged me to look back and take responsibility to see if I had ever posted anything that could cause harm or offence to someone.
“Being totally honest, I’m shocked and appalled and ashamed to say I did find things.”
The radio host insisted that he was “truly, deeply and utterly sorry” for his past actions and words online.
He continued: “I did find things I’m not at all proud of. I don’t associate myself with that.
“I know the person who wrote those things is not the man I am now, but they were there.
“I made the conscious decision to get those things, I have deleted those things.”
“I don’t want that negativity in the world. I don’t want the legacy I have on the internet to be a place where there is negativity, or something that can cause offence.
“For anyone that has ever been offended by something I have said online, I am truly, deeply and utterly sorry.”
Roman went onto say that he wanted to spread “happiness” and encouraged his followers to do the same.
He added: “Going forward, I want to be that good social media user that spreads happiness about humans, not negativity.”
