    Must be tiring back peddling that much. I’m glad Keira got a written apology but really what he said wasn’t his insecurity it was merely him being a total dick.

    What an idiot. He is only apologizing because of the backlash. That is why it took him days to do it. I am still not supporting any of his past or future projects. Bye!!

    Guy’s still a douchebag but I’m glad he came forward and apologized. Now it can blow over instead of it lingering had he not made a comment thereafter.
