Anton Taylor: “I Am Sorry for All the People I Let Down”

The Wisdom of Jozi ShoreAnton Taylor has let some people down. More specifically, he feels he has let “the good people at Osumo” down after recently going on a bender of fast food and alcohol – nullifying the rehab process he had tackled with this chain of high quality Capetonian food cafes.

He stopped by one of their stores recently “to beg for penance and to get something green” into his system, meeting up with Springbok Siya Kolisi – who, judging by this photo, obviously does not approve of the Wisdom of Jozi Shore author’s unhealthy antics.

“Today I feel a bit like Toronto mayor Rob Ford after getting boozed and hitting the white pipe again, and I am sorry for all the people I let down that have been helping me in my battle against this fried rat filth; those who compliment me when I’ve lost weight, those friends that invite me to gym with them, and even those passive-aggressive pricks who make weight-related jibes followed by a winky face,” Taylor wrote in a statement on his Instagram account the day following what he refers to as a “KFC relapse”:

One might only imagine my demons after getting day-drunk yesterday and then subsequently suffering a KFC relapse, having not only a Double-Down Burger meal, but also a massive fried chicken piece and Colonel Burger.

My loser complex was exacerbated infinitely by the fact that I thought it would be a good idea to document my slip-up on every available social media platform.
