Patricia Heaton Apologizes For Harsh Comments
She’s been taking some heat for her recent remarks regarding a Georgetown law student, and now Patricia Heaton is hitting her Twitter feed to apologize.
Late last month, Sandra Fluke paid a visit to congress to express her opinion that the university's health insurance should cover birth control. However, that opinion didn't go over well with everyone, including Miss Heaton.
The star of ABC's "The Middle" took to her Twitter page last week, tweeting, “Hey G-Town Gal! If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who u sleep with! Instant birth control!”
Heaton added, “Hey G-Town: Stop buying toothpaste, soap and shampoo! You’ll save money, and no one will want to sleep with you!”
The posts were later removed after the 54 year-old actress started receiving negative feedback about her comments.
And earlier today, Patricia tweeted her regrets- "I apologized to Ms Fluke last week. I may not agree with her views but I didn’t treat her with respect and I’m sorry. I was wrong. Mea Culpa.”
Heaton also stated, “Tweatons: Finally heard all the commentary. I crossed the line w/@SandraFluke. Don't agree w/her views, but I was not showing Christ's love."
