Firestorm Over AC/DC's Brian Johnson Status In The Band
After several news stories based on his comments surfaced, the Saturday Night Live alumni Breuer walked back his remarks while reminding people that he is a comedian that exaggerates and gets carried away.
Here is the clarification Breuer posted on Facebook, "I have seen some stories circulating about my podcast. As a friend, I saw Brian withdrawn for the first time in my life. He's not a quitter, he seemed hurt by the situation of being between a rock and a hard place. I spoke as a true fan and friend, simply venting as if he was a brother of mine. I hope to see him Rock Out one more time. You have to remember I'm a comedian & a storyteller. I definitely exaggerate and sometimes I get a little carried away!! And this was one of those times!"
The comedian later took to Twitter to further explain, "As far as the podcast - I was not quoting Brian Johnson's words- he was down & out - hoping to finish the tour! It's mostly me venting." He also tweeted, "I had no clue that story would go so viral- but people need to understand . I'm just a friend & fan - with hopes they all finish the tour!"
