Following Les’ post, the fan then issued an apology to Les, which the former Family Fortunes host shared with his fans.
It read: “I would like to formally apologise to @LesDennis, looking back it was a clear case of mistaken identity. #NotDisappointed.”
Accepting the fan’s explanation, Les replied: “And thank you Rick for this dignified response.”
Although Les and the fan resolved the issue, the Twitter exchange inspired others to get involved and share their own false claims about him, accompanied by the hashtag “disappointed.”
