Yes he did.
Did you read the article at all?
Everyone says things in anger, everyone falls out with their friends at some point and spout a whole bunch of shit they don't mean. It just so happens that a famous person did it, in an interview (which I might add, a lot of famous people do). It's just tragic that his friend was then shot not long after by someone who's head was wired wrong and he never got the chance to say sorry and reconcile their differences.
Maybe it wasn't as a direct result of Phil's interview, or maybe it was, we'll never really know for certain. But what we do know is that if everyone kept their mouths shut and didn't express their anger or emotions, then we'd be one damned pent-up world, and a very watered-down one for that.
People say stupid shit every day, mostly without consequence. But unfortunately there are the few people out there who maybe aren't as anchored in reality as the rest of us, or who are mentally ill, who will act upon words of anger from those they look up to. It's a risk people take on a day-to-day basis, it happens.
You can't honestly tell me, hand on heart, that in the heat of a moment you've not told someone you're going to beat them down, or kill them or promise some other nasty thing and not actually meant it. I know I have, we all have.
