Darren Criss Apologizes For Caitlyn Jenner Joke During 'Hedwig' Performance

Darren Criss took to Facebook to apologize to Caitlyn Jenner after he was accused of making an insensitive comment.

Earlier this week, the 28-year-old actor joked about the 65-year-old former Olympian’s transition during a Hedwig and the Angry Inch performance by saying, “man, woman, moman, wan, Bruce Jenner, whatever you are.”

After much criticism, Darren wrote on Facebook, “I want to sincerely apologize to Caitlyn Jenner, all transgender people, and anyone who was offended for my words on stage during Tuesday evening’s performance. In no way do the remarks reflect my personal belief system or my support for transgender people.”

He added, “However, I do realize the severity of the comment and the weight that words can carry and for that, I take full responsibility. I commend Caitlyn on her strength and for spreading acceptance around the globe. I have been and remain a proud and unwavering ally of the LGBTQIA community, and will continue to walk alongside my friends on the road to full equality and acceptance.”

“For those of you who think #HedwigOnBway will be your first Bway show, it won’t. It’ll be your first Hedwig experience (and hopefully a great one you’ll come back to see!) THEN you can go see your first bway show,” Darren added. “What I’m saying is, she’s in a class of her own. #HedwigOnBway is its own wild animal and I hope it rips you up like one. Seeya there.”
