In the message, Renner doesn’t outright apologize but instead blames “context” for the gaffe. Read the full statement (below)!

“The context was that he is all for women or anyone having salary equality but that’s someone else’s job to handle and not his. He is most supportive but doesn’t involve himself in those conversations so when asked he was basically saying that.”

Hmm, we wonder if Jennifer Lawrence accepts this “explanation”! It’s pretty shaky if you ask us — a problem is still a problem even if it doesn’t affect you!

Not one to be outdone by his publicist, J.R. also complained about the controversy on Twitter, saying:

Hmm, “sensationalism”? Inneresting

We just hope Jeremy really understands the weight of his words considering he has a daughter of his own!

So, how do YOU feel about the Avengers star’s statement?
