"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 December 16th, 2015, a 4chan user started a thread on /tv/[1] to apologize to American filmmaker George Lucas for “believing that another director could fix Star Wars”.
