Billy Bob Thornton says he understands the fallout after his odd antics on the Canadian radio show, where he became enraged when the host mentioned the fact that he was an actor. it all has to do with the fact that all bloggers and all journalists who reported on his lunacy are – you know – geeks.

“The fact that that was news was astounding to me, but it gave hump back geeks all over the world something to do for a couple days days… I do that all the time! It’s not the first time….” he said on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The actor/musician also went on to tell of other times when he’s been responsible for similar awkward situations. Like maybe with every film he has ever made?
