Mark Zuckerberg has issued an apology for showcasing Facebook's virtual reality capability with a tour of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

Zuckerberg was discussing Facebook's virtual reality project through avatars in a video recorded live Monday.

The video begins with the avatars pictured on the roof of Facebook's Mountain View, California, headquarters before heading to Puerto Rico by using a 360-degree video recorded by National Public Radio as a backdrop.

He responded by saying the goal of the video was to showcase the work Facebook is doing to help victims.

Zuckerberg said he was sorry to anyone who was offended.
