Rob Lowe

American actor Rob Lowe just had to backtrack big time after he received major backlash for mocking Prince William’s baldness.

Fox News reported that all started when Lowe gave an interview to The Telegraph last month in which he brutally made fun of the royal for losing his hair.

“Can we talk about William? The future king of your country let himself lose his hair!” Lowe began. “Honestly, one of the great traumatic experiences of my life was watching Prince William lose his hair. He’s going to be the f—king king of England!”

“The first glimmer that a single hair of mine was going to fall out, I was having that stuff mainlined into my veins,” he continued. “And that’s what I did for the next 30 years.”

While sitting down with “Good Morning Britain” on Wednesday, Lowe attempted to backtrack after his comments caused mass outrage from those offended by his comments against William.

“My point was here’s a guy who is fully comfortable in his own skin, then on the other side of the coin you have me, I can’t even watch another guy go bald without being even more narcissistic and wanting to plug in the Propecia into a drip into my own,” Lowe said. “This is my thing, I saw the hubbub it caused on your side of the pond, I think it’s a case of two countries divided by a common language. Because that was literally me slagging my own insecurity and narcissism. He’s a stud, I love him. He’s awesome.”

Losing his hair was something that William had no control over, so it was incredibly rude for Lowe to make fun of him for it. While it’s a shame that Lowe did not offer an actual apology in that explanation, we’re glad that he set the record straight and made it clear that William has nothing to be ashamed of.
