Is it fan service? Of course it is but so fucking what? It's just a harmless little bit of sex appeal thrown into this mindless popcorn film. Frankly it was one of the few watchable moments in this raging dumpster fire of a movie. So why should the writer apologize? Because some bitchy femicunts were mad about it? He should have told them to change their fucking tampons and shut the hell up. Or failing that just ignore them. Appeasement doesn't work with these leftoids.
What the writer needed to apologize for was the piss he took in Wrath of Khan's mouth.
