Following the release of the video, the Terminator 2: Judgement Day movie star thanked his fans for their concern. He further insisted in his tweets that there was nothing to worry about. At the same time, he humorously talked about not getting disturbed while Snapchat.

"Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I'm just glad the idiot didn't interrupt my Snapchat," he wrote.
