“His reaction? “Oh, you sad, pathetic woman”. It is sad when someone you adore is actually a jerk. ”
The Seinfeld actor answered her directly via his official Twitter and wrote a number of messages: ‘Dear Bethany, I am so sad that you have taken my remark seriously for some reason.
“I laugh at myself all night. I joke about things like people with tattoos (which I have no real objection to). I ‘play’ with people all night in the spirit of pleasure and it seems that the vast majority understands and appreciates that spirit.
“For some reason you took my silly comment with the intention. I do not know why. But it was clearly a misunderstanding. I think I actually answered your question, I think. I can confuse it with another show ‘.
Bethany answered again and wrote: “Unfortunately, after I asked my question, you looked annoyed, then your exact words were” you pathetic, pathetic woman. ”
“You didn’t answer. You fired me and immediately went on to ask another question about the different relationships you had on the show. You have answered that question.
Back and forth: the 60-year-old shared a series of tweets that the fan, Bethany Williams, answered and insisted that his commentary was “flippant” and “stupid”
‘Your foolish’ foolish ‘remark actually humiliated me. I was overwhelmed by shame and really embarrassed.
“It hurt all the more that I had been such a big fan of yours and I was very happy that I could be in the same room as you. Let alone ask you a question. ”
Jason responded to the fan again and wrote: “Again, I would hear that. With the exception of a few sincere stories, none of my stuff is meant to be considered real. I can only tell you that I am sad that you had a bad time. I can’t say much anymore. ”
Long time fan Bethany tweeted: “Your foolish” foolish “remark actually humiliated me. I was ashamed and really ashamed. ”
Bethany told it later Sydney Morning Herald of the incident: “He just went a bit,” Ugh, you are a sad, pathetic woman.
“Then he just went ahead and didn’t answer my question. I think people were pretty shocked. I was completely humiliated. He made me small for a busy theater. ”
She added: “To then insult me for no reason … that was the most disappointing part of it. I don’t care who you are, you don’t treat people that way ‘.
She added: “It hurt all the more that I had been such a big fan of yours, and I was very happy that I had the opportunity to be in the same room as you. Let alone ask you a question ‘
