That's what you say when nothing happened.
You don't say "Back in high school, I did some dumb things and if anybody was hurt by that or offended, obviously I apologize for that. I participated in a lot of high jinks and pranks during high school and some might have gone too far and for that, I apologize."
That's what you when it happened but you don't see what the big deal is.
