If you wrongly accuse someone of something or unjustly embarrass them in any way in front of an audience, you need to apologize to that person in front of the same audience. A private apology does not resolve the negativity of a public humiliation. Only a public apology will do. It’s only right that you absorb the embarrassment that you had initially heaped on the other person. That is the most honorable resolution.
