Steve Martin — My Pasta Tweet Got Racial … SCUSA!

Breaking News

1221-steve-martin-gettySteve Martin learned an important lesson about lasagna last night … the dish can get racial.

The SNL alum was cracking grammar jokes on Twitter .. when someone asked, “is this how you spell lasonia?”

Steve’s response … “It depends. Are you in an African-American restaurant or at an Italian restaurant.”

Seconds later the 68-year old actor deleted  the tweet and apologized.  But the floodgates opened, the original tweet went viral and Martin atoned again:  “I did apologize.  But again, a second later I realized what an offensive thing I’d done … In retrospect, bad joke.”

A penne for his thoughts.
