Twitter can be a touch crowd. Director, producer and actor Mark Duplass has apologized for a July 18thtweet in support of conservative commentator and Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro.
In The League star’s original missive, he encouraged liberals to cross the aisle and follow Shapiro. "I don’t agree with him on much be he’s a genuine person who once helped me for no other reason than to be nice," Duplass wrote on Twitter. "He doesn’t bend the truth. His intentions are good."
Duplass was quickly dragged as users pointed out Shapiro’s history of racist comments, including one tweet in which he blamed Trayvon Martin for being killed.
Duplass then walked it back, tweeting that he"in no way endorses hatred, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, or any such form of intolerance."
"My goal has always been to spread unity, understanding and kindness," Duplass wrote. "But I am going to make mistakes along the way. Sometimes I move too quickly when I get excited, or fail to do enough research, or I don’t communicate myself clearly. I’m really sorry. I now understand that I have to be more diligent and careful. I’m working on that."
