In an exclusive DM conversation with an angered fan -- which was captured by Deuxmoi -- he explained his reasoning in detail. 

"I don't support any of his behavior, but I choose to believe people can learn from their mistakes and grow," Duhamel responded to someone who sent him the article with a garbage can emoji.

"I don't believe in cancelling or casting people aside because I don't believe in what they do," he continued, "I pray the guy gets the help he needs."

The fan then responded, "I understand what you're saying, but he is being accused of rape and physical abuse towards multiple women. I would hope you 'don't believe' in what he does because it's horrible and disgusting. I feel for his victims, not him."
