Kings Of Leon - Followill Apologises For Glee Rant

KINGS OF LEON rocker NATHAN FOLLOWILL has apologised for lashing out at GLEE's RYAN MURPHY after the writer/director accused him of homophobia during an ongoing spat about music licensing for the show.
The band angered Murphy last year (10) when they declined producers' requests to allow them to feature the hit Use Somebody on the show.
Murphy recently admitted he's still sore about the snub, telling The Hollywood Reporter, "F**k you, Kings of Leon. They're self-centred a**holes, and they missed the big picture.
"They missed that a seven-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument."
Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill tried to put an end to the Glee war, insisting it had spiralled out of control - but his brother Nathan fuelled the feud further with a rant on Twitter.com on Wednesday (26Jan11).
In a post, he wrote, "Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7 yr olds how to say f**k."
Murphy refused to tolerate the rant, telling PerezHilton.com, "Just read Nathan Followill's Tweet...in which he implied I should 'get a manicure and buy a bra.' Wow. That's a homophobe badly in need of some education. I'm all for manicures, don't wear a bra. Would guess most gay dudes don't. But it's telling that Nathan can reduce a group of people to a mean-spirited cliche, in a time where young gay men are killing themselves all over the country because of hatred like this."
Followill has since apologised for his remarks in another Twitter post.
He added, "I'm sorry 4 anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or mysoginistic. I'm so not that kind of person. I really do apologize."
