Patrick J Adams had to say sorry after he offended some of his followers on social media. The “Suits” alum went to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding over the weekend, and when he sat on the plane with his wife, Troian Bellisario, a woman seated next to them pointed to a picture of him in the newspaper and said, “My God. What a terrible photo of you.'”
According to Patrick, he claims the woman said he looked “chunky.” After the woman fell asleep, Adams took a picture of her and posted it online. Turns out that wasn’t a good idea, as his fans and followers accused him of doing the same thing: bullying.
After many people slammed him online, he released an apology saying it was bad for him to do such a thing. And indeed it was, even if the woman deserved it.
Adams said his intention was to “put a face” to the sort of person who makes such comments online, and in real life. To make matters worse for the actor, many of his fans agreed with the woman, stating that he looked “chunky.”
In response, Patrick said he isn’t a bully, but the woman was in the wrong. However, admittedly, he should’ve just left it as it was. He should’ve taken the high road, so to speak.
He added, “I was too shocked and annoyed and Canadian.” Adams went on to give a list of all the things he learned from the experience, primarily, “don’t talk badly about others,” and never use the media to “settle scores.”
And while his apology may have worked, presumably, some of his Canadian followers might take offense to the self-deprecation in relation to his Canadian heritage. Afterall, not all Canadians are scared of confrontation like the “Suits” alum.
As you may know, Patrick and Meghan worked together on the USA series, “Suits,” for seven seasons. Ironically, Meghan and Patrick got married during the season seven finale of the show. Clearly, “Suits” isn’t a reflection of reality.
