Russell Crowe apologized for comments he made on Twitter that were critical of the practice of circumcision.

After a fan asked the Oscar winner Thursday about circumcision, Crowe tweeted, "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 will always stand for the perfection of babies. I will always believe in God, not man's interpretation of what God requires," Crowe continued. "Last of it, if you feel it is your right to cut things off your babies please unfollow and f--- off; I'll take attentive parenting over barbarism."
