“This is a ridiculous non-story. The full quote was, ” Only for you! That’s it, I’m ready now!” according to the statement. “Jim, it was a clear reference to the interview on his bucket list, and it was in no way referring to the journalist himself. This is just one example of a clickbait headline, pandering to the ‘scroll of the culture.'”

The rep also offered a comment on Yahoo, and despite the fact that the response was, “good-naturedly,” and that he is implying that the interview was at the very top of his bucket list.”

The rep will also be extended to “go for culture”, called it “a dirty business is done by and for people with dirty minds.”
