May we present to you: a seemingly authentic sexual harassment apology.

In an episode of his Harmontown podcast, Dan Harmon came out with a very candid admission of sexually harassing a former writer on his sitcom Community.

That's when Harmon turned his humiliation into even darker behavior, actions he says vincidcates Ganz's use of the word "trauma." He explained:
