In the video, he said that the people who were recruited to join the pro-monarchist movement were a group of unemployed and elderly people as well as children from Chonburi province.

He stated that the mob had weapons, but he believed that the people who had recruited them had intended to trigger a conflict. But he did not want to participate in the violence because the group had elderly people and children.

However, Warong Dechgitvigrom later posted another video of him apologising to the royalists for casting aspersions on them, and said his previous video was based on a misunderstanding.
