Joe Francis isn’t denying he had an “appalling” interview with The Hollywood Reporter, but at least he’s sorry that he went off at the mouth.
In Wednesday’s article, Francis rants against the L.A. jury that found him guilty of false imprisonment and assault likely to cause great bodily injury.
Francis, who used the “R” word (retarded), still maintains his innocence against allegations by three women who went back to his Bel-Air mansion after a night of partying in 2011.
“I want that jury to know that each and every one of you are mentally f---ing retarded, and you should be euthanized because, as Darwin said, you have naturally selected yourself,” he told THR, adding. “They should all be lined up and shot!"
In a statement, Francis blames being “manipulated” by the media,” but deeply regrets the remarks: “They were hurtful and do not reflect my true feelings.” He faces a maximum of five years in prison at sentencing in July but plans to appeal.
