Actor Darren Criss is apologizing for an off color ad libbed remarked he recently made during a performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway .

MSNBC reports Criss, who portrayed a gay student in the Fox TV series Glee and has been active in LGBT causes, said “Man, woman, moman, wan, Bruce Jenner, whatever you are.”

“I want to sincerely apologize to Caitlyn Jenner, all transgender people, and anyone who was offended for my words on stage during Tuesday evening’s performance,” he said on Facebook.

 
“In no way do the remarks reflect my personal belief system or my support for transgender people. However, I do realize the severity of the comment and the weight that words can carry and for that, I take full responsibility. I commend Caitlyn on her strength and for spreading acceptance around the globe. I have been and remain a proud and unwavering ally of the LGBTQIA community, and will continue to walk alongside my friends on the road to full equality and acceptance.”
