Disney “Beauty and the Beast” Producer Jack Morrissey apologized Monday for a tweet in which he said that kids wearing “Make America Great Again”(MAGA) should be thrown “into the woodchipper.”

After suffering a public backlast for tweeting "#MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper," Morrissey tweeted an apology Monday, but then switched his Twitter account from public to private, The Wrap reports:

Film producer Jack Morrissey apologized Monday for joking about “MAGA kids” going “screaming, hats first into the woodchipper.” The tweet was accompanied by an iconic image from “Fargo” in which a dead person’s blood flies from a woodchipper.

...

Passions ran high on social media Saturday after video emerged of several students from Covington, Kentucky, many of whom were wearing “Make America Great Again” hats...

...

“It was something that I did not give any thought to,” Morrissey told TheWrap. “It was just a fast, profoundly stupid tweet. … I would throw my phone into the ocean before doing that again.”

In his apology tweet, Morrissey claimed he meant to be satirical, but now realizes his tweet “was in bad taste.”
