Gerardo Ortiz Fuiste Mía Vídeo Oficial (Giovanni Castañeda)

Mexican recording artist Gerardo Ortiz apologized to "all women" who may have been offended by the controversial music video for his song "Fuiste mia" (You Were Mine), in which a drug lord played by the singer is seen killing his girlfriend and her lover after finding out she had been unfaithful.

Ortiz was arrested last week on charges of "criminal exaltation" but is currently free on bail pending trial.

In a news conference Thursday in Culiacan, capital of the northwestern state of Sinaloa, the artist said he wanted "to apologize to all women and all organizations that defend women's rights who were offended by this video."

The Pasadena, California-born artist said he could not answer any questions due to his ongoing case but added that he was confident his legal problems would be resolved.

The regional Mexican singer-songwriter, who will continue to tour in Mexico and the United States despite his legal woes, said in his five-minute statement that due to the negative response to the video he had decided to withdraw it from social media platforms.
