Yep, he ate some crow after those comments he made about the 501st. members during the Rose Parade! I made him "Celebrity Asshole Of The Week" for it in fact.
I wrote him a strongly worded letter to his website afterwards and this is the reply I just recieved:
"I want you to know that I am sending a personal apology to everyone who contacts me from the 501st. I calculate that Michaela and I spent approximately ten minutes on the Star Wars presentation and were most complimentary of the entire Star Wars project and the Grand Marshal, George Lucas. Unfortunately, the information I received as background did not explain the fact that most of the group are professionals and that their major focus is charity work. There is no doubt that I have a ‘tongue in cheek" sense of humor, but I sincerely stress that in no way did I intend to offend anyone involved with the group.Not only did he send that personal apology to ME, but he also publicly and personally apologized to the 501st. themselves. Details on that can be read here.
I ask that you (and they) accept my heartfelt apology and I commend them on the fine work they do in the name of their group.
Way to go to all Star Wars fans who sent him a message that they were NOT happy about being stereotyped as 'jobless groupies.'
Some times it pays to speak ones mind folks!
