Superstar life coach Tony Robbins is apologizing to the #MeToo movement and its founder Tarana Burke after a video went viral in which he seemed to dismiss the goal of the movement.

"At a recent Unleash the Power Within (UPW) event in San Jose, my comments failed to reflect the respect I have for everything Tarana Burke and the #MeToo movement has achieved," he wrote in a lengthy statement on Facebook posted Sunday.

"I apologize for suggesting anything other than my profound admiration for the #MeToo movement," Robbins, 58, continued. "Let me clearly say, I agree with the goals of the #MeToo movement and its founding message of 'empowerment through empathy,' which makes it a beautiful force for good."

"But sometimes, the teacher has to become the student and it is clear that I still have much to learn," he added.
