Patricia Heaton sorry for Rush Limbaugh-supportive tweets
On Feb. 29, the "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "The Middle" actress tweeted:
"Hey G-Town Gal: Plz let us also pay for your Starbucks, movie theater tickets and your favorite hot wings combo deal at KFC! Anything else?"
"Hey G-Town Gal: If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who you sleep with! Instant birth control!"
"If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn't have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce -- sound good?"
Fluke testified Feb. 23 at a House panel advocating for health insurers to cover the cost of birth control, and then on Feb. 29, Limbaugh lashed out at Fluke during his radio show, calling her a "slut" and a "prostitute."
He later issued a statement apologizing to Fluke, as did Heaton on Saturday with this tweet before disabling her account: "Mea culpa Sandra! Wasn't being respectful 2 u re my tweets as I hope people wd b w/me. Don't like you being dissed -so sorry."
She tweeted another apology Monday, "I apologized to Ms Fluke last week. I may not agree with her views but I didn't treat her with respect and I'm sorry. I was wrong. Mea Culpa."
