The recently aired “Parts Unknown” programme featured an interview with Mr. Sabga-Aboud in which he said the Syrian Lebanese community is the most powerful ethnic group in the country.
His comments triggered condemnation and criticisms from many on social media.
In a statement issued yesterday, Mr. Sabga-Aboud admitted he might have come across boastful rather than proud.
And speaking with Newscenter 5 Mr. Sabga-Aboud said for this he was sorry.
He said in the past week he has been chastised by some citizens for remarks they viewed as insensitive and irresponsible.
