Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has apologized in advance of any offensive comments he might make during the promotion of the upcoming film, which is scheduled to debut later this year.
The actor’s preemptive apology, which was posted to his Facebook page, read:
“I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I’m the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s). I am not in the business of making excuses. I am just dumb. Plain and simple. I try. I REALLY try! When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologizing you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line. Those rooms can get stuffy and the hardworking crews putting these junkets together need some entertainment! (Likely) that is who I was trying to crack up when I (will have had) made that tasteless and unprofessional comment. Trust me. I know you can’t say that anymore. In fact in my opinion it was never right to say the thing I definitely don’t want to but probably will have said. To those I (will have) offended please understand how truly sorry I already am. I am fully aware that the subject matter of my imminent forthcoming mistake, a blunder (possibly to be) dubbed “JurassicGate” is (most likely) in no way a laughing matter. To those I (will likely have had) offended rest assured I will do everything in my power to make sure this doesn’t happen (again).”

The LA Times reported that he later posted yet another message online which read as follows:
“With social media the way it is and click bait marketing online you will have a front row seat to all of the promotional action if you so chose. There will be a lot. Dare I say too much if you actually take the time to watch it all!? I suggest you don’t. But that’s up to you (…) If it gets old or you grow weary of my face just remember, you could always do what I did while waiting for the original ‘Jurassic Park’ to open, go outside and play with imaginary dinosaurs! They are the best and they are free!!! And after your children, little brothers, little sisters, nephews, grandchildren, weird neighbor kids, and others, etc. finish seeing our movie that’s what they will be doing anyways so practice now! Take science, add a dash of imagination, 40 thousand tons of suspense and you get an experience that defines a generation! #JURASSICWORLD Well. See you in the press! Love you.”

The long awaited Steven Spielberg film focuses on a theme park filled with genetically engineered predators. Even before its release, the film found itself criticized for its misrepresentation of dinosaurs, as some critics claimed that the dinosaurs should have fur, according to a report on The Mirror. Meanwhile, in a science report which sounds like something out of Jurassic Park, scientists managed to successfully genetically engineer a chicken’s beak to be more like that of a dinosaur’s.
The film is scheduled to be released June 12, 2015.
