Russell Crowe Has Something To Say About Circumcision

Did you know Russell Crowe is on Twitter? It’s amazing because you can set him off without having to worry about a telephone being thrown at your head or being punched in the face.

The other day the topic of circumcision came up in Crowe’s Twitter feed. Someone asked him whether or not to circumcise his newborn son. Feeling impassioned, Russell tweeted back,

– Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect
– RT: @russellcrowe Interesting that female circumcision is widely considered barbaric, while male circumcision is so widely accepted.
– RT: @russellcrowe: Word! It is time for men to stand up for mens’ and boys’ rights. Circumcision is barbaric and akin to genital mutilation.
– many jewish friends, I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies @eliroth
– @RealChopperRead @chrismurphys @eliroth Well mate, you cut off your own ears and did yourself out of a Rayban endorsement
– @catryan46 same as tattoo’s/ plastic surgery;he is an adult and he “wants” it, then off u go,mothers were right 2 keep their babies intact
– I will always stand for the perfection of babies, i will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires
– Abortion should always be a woman’s choice, there is no benefit to “forced” motherhood…you got it? don’t like it then bye
– RT from Eli Roth: @russellcrowe You didn’t seem to be complaining when I was recutting you this afternoon…

Then this morning he tweets an apology and his previous tweets disappear.

– wasn’t intending offense, certainly wasn’t intending to provide fodder for lazy journalists. I can’t appologize for my heartfelt belief
– This is a great forum for communication,I,like any human have my opinions and you all have yours, thank you for trusting me with them
– I have a deep and abiding love for all people of all nationalities, I’m very sorry that I have said things on here that have caused distress
– My personal beliefs aside I realize that some will interpret this debate as me mocking the rituals and traditions of others. I am very sorry

PR reps. Sheesh. Can’t they ever let a guy speak freely about baby foreskin without getting all up in their grill? If it’s not “you’ll get bad publicity” this, it’s “you shouldn’t be talking about baby penises on Twitter” that.

Anteaters = too many possible infections
Acts as a protectant but a careless child/teen who does not thoroughly clean can create a lot of issues
