Emmerdale actor Danny Miller has shared a public apology on his Twitter page after he branded a Greggs worker a “skanky woman” and told her to “f**k off” in an online rant.
Danny, 29, who plays Aaron Dingle on the ITV soap, went into a furious rant after the woman told him to “smile” during an encounter with the bakery staff member.
In the now-deleted tweet, Danny, who recently revealed a “really big argument” took place after a family photo, fumed: “Suffering with a bit of anxiety today and so not my normal self I feel.
“Then some skanky woman working @GreggsOfficial ‘cheer up don't be so miserable. Smile!!’

“You know what, Karen… Why don't you F*** off you insensitive, horrible woman”.
Danny ended the tweet with: “Be nice. Or don't say anything.”
After posting the message, Danny had second thoughts and recanted his statement by deleting the tweet.
The actor explained his reasons for deleting the post as he wrote in a later tweet: “Taken the tweet down because it was unfairly worded and I was just wound up, so wasn’t a true representation of what I wanted to say. Which was;
“Please think before you tell someone to ‘Cheer up and don’t be miserable’. They just might be.”
Danny, who recently gave fans a glimpse of his home, then ended the tweet with: “Sorry & thanks for the love”.
Despite his apology, Danny was targeted by some critics online, as one wrote: “Who the f**k is Danny Miller? Telling people to be nice cos he was struggling with anxiety them calls a woman skanky and uneducated. Nice.”
Another pointed out: “Yes did seem a bit unnecessary to label a Greggs worker a skank. Plays into the hands of a stereotype
“Perhaps she made the same assumptions that you were looking sad as many people do about Greggs Workers”.
As a third suggested: “I would maybe say sorry to her face to face not on a post but if she sees it might give her a boost maybe she was having a mental health day”.
But, Danny was swiftly defended by a fan, who wrote: “So @DannyBMiller cant call out karen from Gregg's for make him feel like s**t but everyone can have a go at him for it and it's ok? HYPOCRITS! IF ITS NOT OK FOR HIM THEN ITS NOT OK FOR ANYONE! LEAVE HIM ALONE FOR F**KSAKE”. [sic]
While another chimed in with: “Apparently its ok not to be ok as long as youre not Danny Miller! He is a human being and allowed to be upset and rant when he feels he needs to just like the rest of us! People need to jump off his back and give him a break! Ffs.” [sic]

To which Danny replied with: “Please don’t worry mate. I feel sorry for them momentarily and then block them.
“It wasn’t the best wording but I standby how it made me feel in front of the whole shop as I was leaving, red faced and mortified. Focus on that publicly pointing out someone’s mood, than what I said.”
The fan then replied to the actor as they wrote: “Its just annoying that they think they can get at you when they would probably feel the same way… I know it annoys and upsets me when im told to not be miserable. Its not as easy as just smiling these days. Hope you are ok though Danny, we love ya” [sic] followed by a kissing emoji and red heart emoji.
Danny responded by saying: “People like that never get to me. I pity them. Then block them. Let them think they win. But out of sight out of mind works well in some places” which he ended with a winking emoji.
