After he showed attitude while in the bottom two, HollywoodLifers thought Astro should be kicked off the show. But after his apology, are you be willing to forgive him? See what Simon Cowell had to say!

The X Factor definitely found a star in pint-sized rapper Astro, and now the teen prodigy says he feels so bad about the outburst that almost got him axed from the show!

Astro took to his Facebook on Nov. 18 to apologize for the behavior, which led to him almost refusing to perform for judges on the Nov. 17 episode.

“I believed I was being mistreated,” he wrote. “My guards are always up, and maybe I took the situation too heavy. I seriously apologize to my fans — what I said and my emotions weren’t directed toward you. I’m 15, and I think I know everything. But the truth is, I don’t, and I handled the situation wrong!”

In return, judge Simon Cowell tweeted on Nov. 18 that everything was all good.

“Met with Astro and his father today and @LA_Reid. Everything is much calmer now and the good news is he’s back on the show next week,” he wrote.

But according our recent poll, 72 percent of HollywoodLifers think Astro should be booted from the show for his behavior! As one commenter wrote, “Astro has to go!!! He had 5 million reasons to have a good attitude. The judges show just how much respect they have about his attitude by keeping him on the show. It just shows money rules.”

What do you think, HollywoodLifers — do you accept Astro’s apology?
