Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has apologised for his harsh comments against circumcision on micro-blogging website Twitter.
Responding to a fan on Thursday, who asked whether he was going to have his newborn child circumcised, Crowe tweeted, "Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin?"
"I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies. if u feel it is yr right 2 cut things off yr babies (sic)." Later, he removed the tweets and aplogised: “I have a deep love or all people of all nationalities, I’m very sorry that I’ve said things that have caused distress.”
