Tell Us How You REALLY Feel About Circumcision, Russell Crowe

“Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature?” Russell Crowe Tweeted yesterday in his usual diplomatic way. “Is it real that God requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.”

After several of his followers tweeted messages of support, the 47-year-old anti-circumite was emboldened, reaching out to his Jewish friends (including director Eli Roth, 39) to encourage them to reject their long tradition of ceremonial circumcision.

“I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats, but stop cutting your babies,” he wrote.

Well, if that doesn’t get them to stop circumcising, I don’t know what will.

“I will always stand for the perfection of babies. I will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires,” Russell shared. “Last of it, if you feel it is your right to cut things off your babies please unfollow and f**k off; I’ll take attentive parenting over barbarism.”

Surprisingly, some people took offense at being called barbaric and inattentive parents (sensitive, I tell ya), leading Russell to delete his Tweet and apologize to his followers, writing:  “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.”

So don’t get your funny little hats in a bunch!  Russell mocks not.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
