When not busy throwing things at hotel concierges, Russell Crowe like to tweet...allot. One of his Twatter followers asked him if she should circumcise her infant son, to which Russell tweeted:
Here's a life rule, if you can't spell it, don't do it.
Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.
I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats, but stop cutting your babies.
I will always stand for the perfection of babies. I will always believe in God, not man's interpretation of what God requires. Last of it, if you feel it is your right to cut things off your babies please unfollow and fuck off; I'll take attentive parenting over barbarism.
When people took offense to his opinion (which he has every right to make), instead of standing by his beliefs he took the easy way out and apologized.
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.
I think circumcision is barbaric as well, and as a child I didn't have the choice to keep it or have it cut off. Some people say it's better to have no foreskin than to have it (because you have to constantly keep it clean), but I love to play with a nice hood ornament every now and again. The issue here is that if you decide to remove or keep your sons' foreskin, parents should take the time to teach their sons how to keep their dicks clean, because no one likes to give a bologna wash to a piece of meat that reeks of smegma and three-day-old piss.
