Celebrity Harassment and Leaked Video Connoisseurs, TMZ, recently got their hands on footage of Jared Leto listening to–and dissing–songs from Taylor Swift’s latest album, 1989. During the video, the Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman seems to praise parts of the album, but the video ends with, “F*ck her. I don’t give a f*ck about her.”
But today, the award winning actor took to Twitter to issue the following apology:
<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>The truth is I think <a href=”https://twitter.com/taylorswift13″>@taylorswift13</a> is amazing + an incredible example of what's possible. If I hurt her or her fans my sincerest apologies.</p>— JARED LETO (@JaredLeto) <a href=”https://twitter.com/JaredLeto/status/674011816670846976″>December 7, 2015</a></blockquote> //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
Did Leto really have to apologize for stating his opinion?
Leto has released a statement via Twitter. He is taking legal action against TMZ for invading his privacy and illegally sharing the footage. You can read his full statement below:
