Stephen Merchant apologises for autism remark

From WENN.com

Ricky Gervais' comedy partner sparked complaints with his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, where the host asked if Merchant's role in new movie I Give It A Year was written specifically with him in mind.

He replied, ""Yes, he wrote the role of a sort of socially autistic nerd who always says the wrong thing.""

Merchant came under fire for the remark, with autism-awareness campaigner Anna Kennedy telling Britain's The Sun newspaper the comment was ""disgraceful"".

The 38 year old has since issued an apology, insisting, ""I'm sorry if it caused offence.""
