Russell Crowe is on vacation in Italy, so why wouldn’t he spend that time tweeted about circumcision? Doesn’t everyone? Mail Online reports:
Russell Crowe caused a Twitter row this morning when he declared circumcision was ‘barbaric and stupid’. The Antipodean actor, 47, risked the wrath of Jewish and Muslims when he declared the practice of removing some or all of a male’s foreskin as ‘immoral’. The Oscar winner, who is currently on holiday in Italy, staunchly defended his viewpoint as he was bombarded with both criticism and praise by his followers. It started with a simple question from a pregnant follower, who asked Crowe is he thought he should get her unborn baby boy circumcised. However, when follower ‘Picknic11’ said: ‘Do you think I should get him circumstanced?’, he replied: ‘Here’s a life rule, if you can’t spell it, don’t do it.’ The actor, who has two sons Charlie, seven, and Tennyson, four, with wife Danielle Spencer, believes babies are ‘perfect’ and should not be tampered with. He said: ‘Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.’ When one Twitter user ‘Hodanismail’ claimed ‘there’s actually a scientific reason for it’, Crowe answered: ‘My friend, “human” science has caused too much damage, don’t be a moron.‘ Things took a more stronger tone when another user ‘BarackMcBush’ insisted ‘It’s more hygienic and nobody remembers it’. The Tweet then prompted Crowe to blast: ‘Hygienic? Why don’t you sew up your ass then?’ A follower named ‘Lolis02’ then brought up the religious reasons for circumcision – referring to the bris ceremony, when a newborn Jewish boy undergoes the procedure. After Crowe retweeted two follower comparing circumcision to sexual mutilation, she said: ‘Honestly you are comparing sexual mutilation with a Jewish ceremonial act?!’ He said: ‘Can you actually read the words you just typed “a ceremonial act”? F**K that. The Mayans had ceremonial acts too.’
I’m neither Jewish or Muslim and my shit was cut off, and I’m cool with it. Mostly because my dick doesn’t look like a leg warmer. But to say it makes any religious or hygienic significance whatsoever is, well, kinda dumb. I’m sure Moses and Isaac didn’t have Axe Cool Rain body wash. My grandma says it makes me a real catch.
