Us Weekly reported last week that Jason Bateman was booed outside an Apple store in L.A. for cutting a line of 2,000 iPhone 4 enthusiasts, relying on the account of eyewitnesses. But perhaps those "eyewitnesses" where impatiently waiting in some other line, because the actor has since taken to Twitter to set the record straight.
“There wasn’t one boo. Not one hiss,” Bateman wrote in response to claims made by an eyewitness who said, “Everyone literally started booing and hissing!” Another onlooker said, “The crowd freaked and booed, and he put his head down,” according to the magazine.
But one thing is for sure: Bateman did get to skip the line Thursday.
“The Apple guy brought me in away from the paparazzi,” he wrote. “Period. I was content in line. I wish I’d stayed.”
