It's absolutely shocking to think that a grown man, a comedic actor no less, appeared on a late-night talk show after having a couple of drinks and appearing somewhat drunk.
Really, it's just depressing that moral standards on television have sunk so low that Chris O'Dowd went on 'The Last Leg', was a bit sloshed, and managed to entertain an audience and the show's host with a few funny stories. How dare he. It's shameful stuff, really.
O'Dowd went on a tour of contrition on Twitter late last night, presumably after sleeping off the drink and vowing never to consume alcohol again, where he admitted that he was in fact drunk.
I may have had a couple too many of these last night. ðŸ˜” https://t.co/yx7ZpYEqRx

As O'Dowd pointed out on Twitter, it didn't feel to him like he drank a lot, but admitted that he went straight from the gym to the studio and didn't eat between. That's a common mistake, to be fair, and drinking on an empty stomach can get you messy fast.
The Roscommon native did, however, cop to being a little embarrassed, but added that "to keep things in perspective, it’s a tipsy comedian on a late night chat show on Channel 4. I wasn’t doing meth on (BBC Breakfast)."
After all, how many times has Mark Wahlberg done 'Graham Norton' half-cut? The best shows are like that, for Christ's sake.
