He apologized for the hour and a half delay

Remember the speculation that Marc Jacobs pulled the ultimate petty move and delayed his show to make editors miss Rihanna's Savage X show? Well, he's set the record straight on Instagram, but with no mention about Rihanna's show (or apology to her).

"I sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone who was inconvenienced by my lateness at our Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show," Jacobs posted to Instagram. "For anyone interested, below is not a list of excuses but rather a list of facts. I fully understand people have plans, lives, commitments, flights, families to return to, etc and that I fully RESPECT."

While Anna Wintour didn't leave the show as many had thought and feared, many others had to move on with their lives as the usually on-time designer was nearly 90 minutes late starting his NYFW SS19 runway. Jacobs addressed the potential personal plans people may have needed to get to, but didn't point out the glaring time conflict: Rihanna's 9 p.m. show, which snagged the NYFW finale from him.

The #facts (not excuses) that Jacobs shared included that he "believed" on the eve of the show that it'd be on time, he found out it'd be an hour late at 3:30 p.m. but told attendees there'd be only a half-hour delay, and that (basically) shit happens. "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans," Jacobs quoted, and asked people for a bit more sensitivity and flexibility. Read the full apology, below.

We talk to the stars and creator about the show's iconic first season

Veronica Mars is a show that's had more than nine lives over the course of its 15-year run. What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.
