Cousin Anthony says he's sorry.
The outspoken baker on TLC's "Cake Boss" — full name Anthony Bellifemine — has backed down after he posted a tweet on Monday, just after the Boston bombings, that blamed foreign-born "animals" for "attacking us."
"We even pay for them to go to school hows that!," @cousinanthony ranted.
The message was quickly denounced online, including by some of Bellifemine's 25,000 followers. He attacked one critic for her "typical liberal attitude."
Although President Obama has called the Boston bombs "an act of terrorism," it is unclear who's responsible and the investigation is ongoing.
