In an extraordinary confession via a series of tweets, comedian/actor Steve Rannazzisi admitted he lied about being in one of the World Trade Center twin towers during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York.

Tweeting in response to a New York Times story uncovering his longstanding false narrative, Rannazzisi, 37, said he was an "immature" young man who made a mistake, said he didn't understand why he said what he said 14 years ago, that he was "truly, truly sorry," and that he begged for forgiveness.
