    Default Steve Martin apologizes for racist tweet

    Martin likes to communicate with fans thru his twitter account.

    He asked his followers to submit their grammar questions for his advice

    one follower tweeted

    "Is this how you spell lasonia?"

    and Martin replied

    "it depends. Are you in an African American neighborhood or an Italian restaurant?"

    he deleted it within moments, and apologized but it still stirred up controversy

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    So, making fun of ebonics is considered racist now? It deserves to be ridiculed.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yo! Ni88a, what u b sayin'?

    I am sure if he made fun of a southern draw or some other dialect of English, it would not have made a single ripple effect.

    Steve Martin is great. It would be much bigger news if he were more relevant right now. If he had, say, a reality show or something, this would definitely gain more traction.
