"Obviously, it's something we don't want to necessarily do," he said, via KSHB-TV. "There were things that were said to him and [Patrick’s fiancé Brittany Matthews] that you don't see on the clip. He's been good at trying not to respond to that stuff. He takes a lot and he's usually pretty good at it and he'll learn from it and try to stay away from those people as best he can."
