Earlier in the week, Romney came under fire from Obama and some Republicans for quickly accusing the Obama administration of apologizing to Islamic militants who invaded the U.S. embassy in Cairo. Romney's comments came the night that militants invaded a consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
The statement that Romney was citing had been issued by the U.S. embassy in Cairo before the attacks occurred and were intended to condemn the movie's intolerant view of Islam.
Romney, however, did not back off his statement.
Today when asked about the movie, Romney said that "using something sacred and then parading that out in a negative way is simply inappropriate and wrong."
He acknowledged the film maker has a First Amendment right, "But it's not right to do things that are of the nature of what was done by, apparently this film," he said.
