Just because the Golden Globes are over doesn’t mean Sylvester Stallone’s acceptance speech is too.

The Creed actor took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize for not including his costar, Michael B. Jordan, and director, Ryan Coogler, in his list of thank you’s on Sunday. The revision comes after Samuel L. Jackson criticized the omission on his social media.

Samuel Jackson is upset that I foolishly forgot to mention the brilliant Ryan Coogler and MB Jordan he is right I owe them everything,” Stallone wrote.

Jackson prompted the mea culpa by tweeting on Sunday, “#waitwaitwait, Ryan Coogler & Michael B Jordan, Thanks for acting with me!!! Loved Sly but…” But after retweeting Stallone’s apology, Jackson wrote, “I loved the performance @TheSlyStallone, You killed It! I know you love those guys!”

Stallone, 69, received a standing ovation when he won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor for his role in Creed. “Please, thank you! I’m going to try not to get emotional because I am the sum total of everyone I’ve ever met,” Stallone said onstage.

The actor also thanked his dates for the night – his wife and daughters – saying, “actually having your love is the greatest award every day.”

Stallone went on to thank his earliest supporters, “Who actually mortgaged their house [to help] a bumbling actor get the chance of a lifetime.”

Finally, he said that “most of all, I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had.”
