At least Zach Braff knows when he’s wrong.
In the controversial tweet, Braff compared the singer’s costume to that of a monkey in Oz the Great and Powerful.
While the actor attempted to make a comparison between their outfits, many people were outraged that he would draw a parallel between a monkey and a person of color.

The Scrubs star captioned the since deleted tweet:
“The Grammys are time-delayed in LA(?!) but someone just sent me this: #IWoreItBetter.”
After an intense bout of backlash, Zach responded:
“I love Pharrell. I thought the outfit he wore was similar to that of my bell hop outfit in Oz. I apologize.”
While we don’t think Braff meant to intend any harm, he should have been aware of the negative connotation of his “joke”.
