The hot new item is the iPhone 4 and many celebrities want them, including the “Arrested Development” actor. Well he was in line like everyone else and paparazzi were allegedly going crazy and would not give the star a break. So then an employee escorted him out of line and away from the cameras. Then the “chaos” began!

A story that ran made way too big a deal out of what actually happened. Us Weekly said that people booed, hissed and freaked out. Well on Twitter Jason Bateman “apologizes” (more like clears the air) for the dilemma.

“There wasn’t one boo. Not one hiss,” Bateman said on Twitter. “The Apple guy brought me in away from the paparazzi. Period.”

Even with the story being discounted, people still wondered how he could actually bump the line. Now we hear that he even waited at the back of the line, just away from the onlookers. It was way more drama than he was hoping for and may reconsider doing something like this ever again!

“I was content in line. I wish I’d stayed.”

As if Hollywood doesn’t have enough drama, now we get stuff that probably never even happened! After his first update, the 41 year old finished by tweeting this:

“Correction- If there were boos, I didn’t hear them. If some were mad, I didn’t see them. I wish I had. If you’re out there, I’m sorry.”

What do you think about Jason Bateman apologizing for the incident? And do you think he actually did anything wrong? Let me know below after you check out these photos and video.

    I think this has been by far the dumbest thing ever! I saw the pics of him the day of, and frankly I think he is a pretty awesome down to earth guy, if he would’ve been any other one of these snooty actors they would’ve not even made a line to start off with! He was sitting patiently in line like he was just a regular joe, and he got picked off the line. Now seriously people if that was anyone of you would you have stayed in the line or gone with the apple guy?

    Jason did nothing wrong, he was in line and waiting like everyone else. he did not send somebody up to the store and ask for special favors, and seriously, YOU know if it were you, and they came and got YOU out of line.. it would be ok then right??? you bet your A you would!!! people are only complaining and making a big deal out of it ONLY because it was not them moving up in line. Way to go Jason, enjoy your phone and dont worry about all the people that are jealous because you got your Iphone 4. BTW…. how is it??? lol lol
