Jack Maynard has apologised after a tweet from 2011 emerged where he joked about rape.

The Sun reports the tweet was posted when he was 16, in which Maynard said "If you get me to 1500 followers by tomorrow, I will kiss you... most likely rape you though."

Maynard tweeted last night, saying he is "truly sorry".

The YouTube star has already had to apologise for homophobic and racist tweets which were uncovered while he was on I'm A Celebrity.

He was forced to leave the jungle because of it, and he later posted a video to his channel apologising, where he admitted to saying some "pretty disgusting things".
