What’s worse than no apology at all for doing something stupid and egregious?
Giving out a lame, non-apologetic apology.
And Jason Pierre-Paul of the New York Giants has just given a prize one.
If you saw “All the President’s Men,” you no doubt recall how the Washington Post editor talked about the Watergate criminals non-denial denials?
Well, let’s call Jason Pierre-Paul’s “apology” exactly what it is.
A non-apology. What did he say about using the N-word? Shaming Prince Amukamara in front of his teammates? Making the entire sports world aware that the Giants routinely toss rookies into an ice tub as a matter of hazing practice?
“For us guys, it was funny, but to the media and all the fans, they didn’t find it funny. I apologize to my fans. It was just a joke that [went] bad,” Pierre-Paul squealed.
Absolute BULL. This was no joke. It was bullying.
And the non-apologetic apology to get fans and media off his back is very transparent. –Moderator Hank Nuwer
