"Apologize" (or "Apologise") Posts refer to a type of discussion thread on 4chan in which the original poster asks users to settle their differences with a famous individual or group by retracting their negative opinions on said subject, such as actors or athletes whose performances either exceeded prior expectations, or were outright better than those of their successors. While most often seen on /sp/, it is most often associated with George Lucas on /tv/.

On November 19th, United States President-elect Donald Trump posted a tweet ordering the cast of the musical Hamilton to apologize for addressing Vice President-elect Mike Pence during a performance the previous evening (shown below).
