Jesse Eisenberg Clarifies 'Genocide' Comments About Comic-Con: 'I Was, Of Course, Using Hyperbole'

Jesse Eisenberg has clarified controversial remarks he made earlier this week, where he compared appearing at Comic-Con to genocide.

The actor, who will be playing Lex Luthor in the upcoming superhero epic ‘Batman v Superman’, put in an appearance at the comic convention last week, where a new trailer for the film was unveiled.

Really, Jesse? You literally can’t think of a single thing to compare standing in front of thousands of fans to, other than the mass killing of a group of people?

Well, unsurprisingly, a lot of people aren’t happy with the actor for his rather flippant comparison, causing him to clarify what he meant by his remarks.

This year’s Comic-Con provided us with many stand-out moments, other than Jesse’s unfortunate slip of the tongue, including Jennifer Lawrence discussing her recent tattoo fail, and some interesting comments from Jenna Coleman about the possibility of a female ‘Doctor Who’, in the future.
