Taran Killam blasted for calling 'rural' Americans 'stupid'

Fox411: Former 'SNL' star tweets out insult after Trump win


Taran Killam got himself into trouble when he tweeted "rural = stupid" Tuesday night.

The former "Saturday Night Live" star took a lot of heat for his tweet which was seemingly in reference to election results from those living in rural areas.

The 34-year-old star did tweet out an apology...sort of.

His apology didn't seem to please any of his fans who continued to slam the star for his remarks.

Finally, Wednesday morning, the actor who is married to "How I Met Your Mother" star Cobie Smulders, tweeted he was embarrassed by his "thoughtless and mean statements."
