The recent controversy surrounding Covington Catholic students and a Native American protester drew overreaction from media and celebrities alike. One actress is apologizing for her overreaction.

According to Fox News:

Hollywood actress Jamie Lee Curtis admitted Sunday she rushed to judge the viral video showing high school student Nick Sandmann wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and standing still in front of 64-year-old Native American Nathan Phillips.

“There are two sides to every story,” she tweeted, attaching a statement from Sandmann, who attends Covington Catholic High in Park Hills, Kentucky.

“I made a snap judgment based on a photograph & I know better than to judge a book by its cover,” Curtis wrote. “I wasn’t there. I shouldn’t have commented. I’m glad there wasn’t violence. I hope theses [sic] two men can meet and find common ground as can WE ALL.”


Other Hollywood celebrities pounced on the video, and none have apologized.

The apology for bullying undeserving children is a big step in the right direction but was unfortunately only taken by Curtis.
