No skin off Rus­sell’s, er, nose

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Ah Rus­sell Crowe, you spoil us with your in­tem­per­ate out­bursts. The great man has been forced to apol­o­gise for com­ments made via stupid Twit­ter con­cern­ing (of all things) cir­cum­ci­sion. Asked if he would be snip­ping his re­cently born son, he tweeted: “Cir­cum­ci­sion is bar­baric and stupid. Who are you to cor­rect na­ture? Is it real that GOD re­quires a do­na­tion of fore­skin?”

Feel­ing that 140 char­ac­ters were in­suf­fi­cient to stir con­tro­versy, he con­tin­ued: “I love my Jewish friends, I love the ap­ples and the honey and the funny lit­tle hats but stop cut­ting yr ba­bies. if you feel it is yr right to cut things off yr ba­bies.” (Place “sic” where ap­pro­pri­ate.) Fol­low­ing dig­i­tal bel­low­ing, Crowe later did the de­cent thing and re­moved the com­ments. Does Mel Gib­son have a Twit­ter ac­count?
