Weiner Apologizes, Celebrities React
Once a Weiner, always a Weiner.
New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is in hot water again after admitting that he continued to send sexually explicit pictures of himself under the name “Carlos Danger” to an unidentified woman after resigning from Congress in 2011.
During a press conference held Tuesday, Weiner issued an apology for his actions, saying, “Some of these things happened before my resignation, some of them happened after. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me.”
His wife, Huma Abedin, stood alongside Weiner throughout the press conference and finally spoke publically about the scandal, telling reporters, “I love him. I have forgiven him. I believe in him, and as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.”
Meanwhile, Hollywood took to Twitter to express their thoughts on this latest incident, including:
Lena Dunham (“Girls”): “I’m worried I f-cked Carlos Danger in college”
Rainn Wilson (“The Office”): “If the #RoyalBaby were to be named “Carlos Danger”, this would be the greatest news day of all time. #DoItEngland!”
Patton Oswalt: “Right now Samuel L. Jackson is in Anthony Weiner’s apartment, telling “Carlos Danger” about the Avengers Initiative.”
And Andy Cohen (host of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live”): “Would it be wrong to suggest that Kate & Will consider #CarlosDanger as a name for the tyke? I dig it!”
