LOS ANGELES -- Sylvester Stallone has taken to social media to officially thank "Creed" director Ryan Coogler and star Michael B. Jordan days after winning the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in the film.
He wrote Tuesday on Twitter that he owes everything to his director and co-star.
Stallone reprises his role as Rocky Balboa in "Creed."
At Sunday's ceremony, Stallone failed to recognize Coogler and Jordan in his acceptance speech. The actor did return to the stage during a commercial break to make amends to his collaborators.
But the moment wasn't televised, and many people criticized Stallone on social media for his oversight, including Samuel L. Jackson and Ava DuVernay. In his tweet, Stallone says Jackson is right for being upset that he "foolishly forgot" to mention Coogler and Jordan.
Samuel Jackson is upset that I foolishly forgot to mention the brilliant Ryan Coogler and MB Jordan he is right I owe them everything— Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) January 12, 2016
