We recently reported on Lukas Gage, the Euphoria actor who went viral after sharing a Zoom audition video in which the director, thinking he was on mute, trash-talked Gage's apartment.

Shapeero's worked on projects such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Community.

During the Zoom audition, which Lukas recorded and released online, Tristram seemingly thought he was muted and said, "These poor people live in these tiny apartments, like I'm looking at his background and he's got his TV..."

"I know it's a s-y apartment", Gage says.

Despite what is probably wise advice: to say the least possible and let this pass, I have chose to come forward, take responsibility, make the apology Mr. Gage deserves, and offer some background for my unacceptable and insensitive remarks.

The American actor, 25, shared a video of their exchange on social media last Friday, in which the then-unnamed director can be heard commenting on Gage's Zoom background. "Give me this job so I can get a better one".

Even if the words themselves weren't bad (debatable), it was DEFINITELY rude to be focusing on Gage's apartment instead of his audition. "Listen, I'm living in a four-by-four box, just give me the job and we'll be fine".

Fans immediately began speculating as to who the director could be - as Gage's tweet did not identify him by name.

The audition took place in August 2020, so it is not clear why Gage has only now chose to share the footage on social media.

After the original video was shared, Gage received support from prominent figures in U.S. entertainment such as Seth MacFarlane, Judd Apatow, and Billy Eichner.

What has the director said now?

First and foremost I offer Mr. Gage a honest and unvarnished apology for my offensive words, my unprofessional behavior during the audition and for not giving him the focus and attention he deserved.

"I was using the word "poor" in the sense of deserving sympathy, as opposed to any economic judgment", Shapeero wrote.

On Tuesday morning, Tristram Shapeero came forward to confirm he was the unseen director and apologise to Gage again, this time via an open letter published in Deadline.

"I don't have any apology because I didn't say anything bad".

He closed out his apology by stating he intends to move forward as a more empathetic person and better partner to the actors.
