Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes has apologized for statements he made earlier this week during an interview with Fox Business, while discussing the November 13 attacks in Paris.

While responding to a question, Hughes noted that there were some security members absent from the venue that night, and seemed to imply that they might've known about or been connected with the massacre.

Earlier today, Bataclan responded to Hughes' claims, calling them "insane."

Now, Hughes' has released a statement in response, apologizing for his "absurd" accusations. He adds that since the horrific incident he has not been himself and been "dealing with non-stop nightmares" among other things. You can read the statement in its entirety below.
