Steve Martin Apologizes For Bad “Racist” Joke On Twitter

Racist or nah??

Via TMZ:

Steve Martin learned an important lesson about lasagna last night … the dish can get racial. The SNL alum was cracking grammar jokes on Twitter .. when someone asked, “is this how you spell lasonia?” Steve’s response … “It depends. Are you in an African-American restaurant or at an Italian restaurant.”

Seconds later the 68-year old actor deleted the tweet and apologized. But the floodgates opened, the original tweet went viral and Martin atoned again: “I did apologize. But again, a second later I realized what an offensive thing I’d done … In retrospect, bad joke.”

Were you offended or are people just Sensitive Susies???
