Parks and Recreation” star Rashida Jones is quickly pulling the plug on a quote in which she urged John Travolta to come out of the closet.

Jones made headlines because of an interview with the website Spinning Platters in which she stated that it would be good for the gay community if a movie star revealed their homosexuality, namely somebody like Travolta.

“Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this,” she said to the site about Travolta, referencing recent lawsuits by two male massage therapists against the movie star earlier this year. Travolta has continually denied all of the accusations and both men have subsequently dropped their cases.

The aftermath of her “accusation” made headlines around the country, and Jones quickly hit Twitter on Tuesday to withdrawal her comment.

“Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody’s personal life is my business,” she posted.
