He posted a long Twitter statement saying, "I wanted to start by saying thank you so much for your wonderful comments and support for my appearance on Sunday. You may not have read it, but I definitely saw them and felt them!
"Having spent 16 years in the public eye, I have always accepted the views of people. Personally, my music and performances will never be for everyone, and that's fine."
The 35-year-old, whose new single is his first release by The Only Man of 2015, said he "leaves a lot of things, but the huge level of imbalance of negativity towards the printed press over the past few days was frankly shocking and must face it ".
He continued: "This level of uninterrupted abuse must not be tolerated in any walk of life. From my appearance, the size and shape of my body in my performance and even dragging innocent people to it as they did to the Nile Rodwhur simply for a clickbait header is absolutely required, it also gives the hoops a bigger voice and platform.
"What is even more strange to me is that some of them are the first to write that we need to be more socially aware and to become aware of electronic bullying and mental health awareness. Is that different?"
