Legends of Tomorrow: Dominic Purcell Jokes About Quitting; Post Change

Here's hoping that DC's Legends of Tomorrow star Dominic Purcell isn't going to be using that extra time he's going to have to get into stand-up because if his Instagram post from earlier today is any sign? He's going to need serious work on his "tight five." So it seems that Purcell isn't leaving the show- he's just not returning on a full-time basis. And all of that stuff he posted earlier? Apparently, he was joking because he "needed a laugh"- and apparently enjoyed making the "snowflake generation" upset on a Saturday. Looks like it's still a big love fest over there, what with those legally binding handshake deals and all. Here's a look at the original post:

"WHY SO SERIOUS——I needed a laugh and got one fooled ya!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂…… Everyone's losing their mind. No issue with studio. Or anyone. Wanted a laugh. Now I know I am loved 🤣🤣……but yes I am leaving [DC's Legends of Tomorrow] on a full time basis but have every intention of coming back periodically just not full season," Purcell wrote in a revised caption to his Instagram post. "It's a handshake deal with me and Phil Klemmer my boss.I love the character and Mick. Love the cast. So funny how the press jump down shit. wow the snowflake generation a touchy world. [Warner Bros. TV] sorry for freaking u out. Nice negotiation tactic😉🤣. …."

UPDATE: Apparently, the "joke" was so funny it got taken down:

UPDATE II: So Purcell is back with another revision- this one not quite as abusive towards the fans. Notice the "snowflake" line is missing? "WHY SO SERIOUS. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣……. MY last post needed a laugh. It was a joke and The 😂……. press went nuts. ….Look I am leaving @cw_legendsoftomorrow but will come back periodically it's a handshake deal with my boss Phil Klemmer. I don't have a beef with studio 😂😂😂🤣 @warnerbrostv don't have a beef with anyone. Shit woke up this morning like I'd caused mass #riots …. But what genius negotiating move. I am loved. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣"
