After bashing ‘Duck Dynasty’ star, Nikki Sixx admits he’s ‘been stupid’ too
Why did @NikkiSixx delete his anti Robertson Tweets? I’m not going to rag on the guy if he had a change of heart. Am curious though.

Nikki Sixx explains:
Yes I have a problem w/ a 67 year old man who has a hit TV show saying things I feel he should know better than but I've been stupid b4 too.

A faint glimmer of self-awareness? Maybe. After a little push from Twitchy.
This morning we told you about the Mötley Crüe bassist’s late-night bashing of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson. Sixx lashed out at Robertson, calling him a racist, homophobic “a-hole” for his remarks to GQ.
Unlike Sixx, Robertson wasn’t caught on tape spewing the N-word and “f*ggot.” Some of Robertson’s words may have been what his family called “coarse” and “unfiltered,” but he was simply sharing his religious beliefs and personal experience at the prompting of a reporter. Twitchy readers helpfully reminded Sixx of his big ol’ glass house and he quickly and quietly deleted his tweets.

Sixx’s admission that he’s “been stupid b4 too” came a few hours and a lot of criticism later. Twitchy at your service.
A quick roundup of reaction to his reluctant acknowledgement of hypocrisy:
@NikkiSixx appreciate you owning to your mistakes as well; we are a free country whether we agree with others speech

.@NikkiSixx, what exactly did he say that was offensive? He clearly wrapped up his comments that he loves all humans, but you ignore that???

And our favorite response:
@NikkiSixx Aaron Sorkin is 67?!
