Kevin Bacon offered an apology to his fans today after he revealed a spoiler for his show The Following.
Bacon, who plays FBI agent Ryan Hardy on the Fox thriller, retweeted a message from a fan that revealed a key plot twist. When Bacon realized his mistake he quickly offered an apology to his fans.
Bacon wrote: “To all the fans abroad and late watchers I’m truly sorry I retweeted a spoiler. I just wasn’t thinking. Won’t happen again. #MyBad.”
According to MSN, Bacon accidentally retweeted a message about the episode that aired on Monday, April 8. It really wouldn’t have been a big deal except for the fact that the episode has not yet aired abroad.
Bacon has more than 200,000 followers and apparently some of those people were a little upset to find out about what happened in the episode before it aired.
So what was the spoiler? (If you don’t want to know, you should probably stop reading.)
Bacon retweeted a message that read: “
@kevinbacon is a murderer too! Nice twist.”
Here’s a look at last week’s episode of The Following.

Do you watch The Following? There are only a few episodes left this season but don’t worry, Fox has ordered another 15 episodes for season two.
Fox president Kevin Reilly said: “Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue for another season.”
