Andrea Swensson of the Twin Cities’ CityPages blog criticized a particularly vulgar portion of Green’s performance in Minnesota in her review.

Green tweeted:

“I respect your criticism, but be fair! People enjoyed last night! I’m guessing you’re gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f*** you!”

Green issued a rather lackluster apology:

“Apologies gay community! what was homophobic about that? I said I was guessing he way gay which is fine but its nice to what u think of me”

And that’s when we can only assume that someone with some experience in public relations stepped in and got Green an interview with Us magazine:

“She was very critical of me. At the time I didn’t even know what gender the person was. I was being a little outspoken that night, a little outrageous. I always expect people to assume that everything I do is part of my character and sense of humor. I assumed that whoever it was would assume it was all in good fun. It wasn’t taken so well, apparently.
