Veteran actor Ian McKellen has apologised after making controversial comments about the sexual assault allegations that have been levelled against actor Kevin Spacey and filmmaker Bryan Singer. McKellen, 79, released a statement on Twitter on Saturday, saying that his comments were “wrong”, reports people.com.

“As part of an extended podcast recently, I suggested that if closeted people were instead open about their sexuality they wouldn’t abuse others. That, of course, is wrong.

“My intention was to encourage the LGBT audience I was addressing, to be proud and open about their sexuality. In doing so, my point was clumsily expressed. I would never, ever trivialise or condone abuse of any kind,” the actor said. (IANS)
