    Kate Mulgrew Apologizes for Involvement in The Principle, Says She Doesn't Stand by Geocentric Documentary

    Kate Mulgrew, Orange is the New Black Netfllix

    Orange Is the New Black's Kate Mulgrew does not stand by her latest project, a documentary called The Principle.

    The film is quickly garnering attention for its controversial views on geocentrism, which claims that the sun revolves around the Earth.

    But it turns out that the Star Trek actress sides with the endless documented proof that the Earth revolves around the sun, and not the views presented in the Katheryne Thomas-directed project. Phew!

    Mulgrew, who narrates the documentary, released a statement on her Facebook page apologizing to fans and clarifying that she doesn't stand by the beliefs in the film.

    "I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called The Principle. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in Slate," she explained.

    "I am not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. More importantly, I do not subscribe to anything Robert Sungenis has written regarding science and history and, had I known of his involvement, would most certainly have avoided this documentary. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that. I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused.

    Krauss echoed Mulgrew's sentiments on the documentary, telling Slate, "I have no recollection of being interviewed for such a film, and of course had I known of its premise I would have refused."
