AP: Jesse Eisenberg said that he was using hyperbole when he compared the Comic-Con experience to "genocide" late Tuesday afternoon.
The actor previously said the experience of facing screaming fans at Comic-Con was "terrifying."
Tsk tsk Eisenberg. You're no longer filming, no need to keep up the arrogant villain personality anymore lol. It was very obviously hyperbole or your very own brand of dry humor but it was still an odd comment. Rivaling Micheal Douglas's "comic-con fanboys are a bunch of macrobiotic freaks" kerfuffle. Keep it together guys!
its still poor taste saying genocide
Yeah, I'm not sure what he was thinking. He could have stopped at "I was scared of the screaming crowds" but he had to add those weird comments. I'll chalk it up to him being weird. XD
This is why he is widely disliked by people. He is getting a reputation for being difficult in Hollywood as well as for being petty.
