Actor Rainn Wilson could not genuflect and apologize fast enough to the trans community after tweeting “a mean crack about breastfeeding vs chestfeeding” on Thursday.
The offending tweet on Thursday quipped, “TIL you can no longer say ‘nursing or breastfeeding mother’ you have to say ‘chestfeeding person.’ Just FYI.”
“The Office” star pathetically begged forgiveness after sending out the tweet.
“Yesterday I tweeted a mean crack about breastfeeding vs chestfeeding. After speaking with some Trans friends and educating myself a bit more I want to apologize for the tweet. It was adding to misinformation and meanness. I’m sorry.”
The Daily Beast is reporting that Wilson’s tweet may have resulted from a recent U.K. public health service guide that encouraged more inclusive language for trans parents, specifically in regards to midwifery.

Progressives praised the bending of both knees by Wilson. Conservatives… not so much.
“I’m embarrassed for you,” tweeted Seth Dillon, who is the CEO of the notorious satire site, Babylon Bee.

“Perhaps you should talk with some actual nursing mothers and educate yourself about why the term ‘chestfeeding’ is offensive and degrading to women. (Women, in case you are confused, are the humans who are able to breastfeed children),” former senior adviser to President Donald Trump Stephen Miller sarcastically tweeted.
“Woke Democrats are trying to erase women and erase the experiences of women,” he stated in a follow-up tweet.

“Absolutely pathetic…” astutely tweeted BlazeTV host Dave Rubin.
“Serious beta energy,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck snarked.
Wilson has stepped in it before. Last year he remarked that people who decided to not get the COVID jab seemed to be the angriest that the government had not put an end to the pandemic.
“People who refuse to get vaccinated seem to be the angriest that the government hasn’t ‘fixed’ or ‘stopped’ the virus by now. Please explain,” he tweeted in December.

The actor tweeted on Thursday, “Here’s why so many people who don’t want ‘government overreach’ long for something approaching authoritarianism: … . I have no idea.”

Wilson joins a long list of celebrities who have apologized for being politically incorrect.
Singer and songwriter Lizzo apologized earlier this week for a lyric in her new song “GRRRLs” after fans claimed she used an ableist slur, according to The Wrap. Lizzo released a new version of the song that ditched the line “I’m a sp-z,” citing the fact that it comes from the word “spastic,” which is used to classify certain disabilities.
“It’s been brought to my attention that there is a harmful word in my new song, ‘GRRRLS’. Let me make one thing clear: I never want to promote derogatory language. As a fat Black woman in America, I’ve had many hurtful words used against me so I overstand the power words can have (whether intentionally or in my case, unintentionally),” Lizzo tweeted.
“I’m proud to say there’s a new version of GRRRLS with a lyric change. This is the result of me listening and taking action. As an influential artist I’m dedicated to being part of the change I’ve been waiting to see in the world,” she stated.
