I agree with the dumbass part but I'm sticking with my original statement and saying he doesnt have to apologize. The world we live in today is way to damn sensitive and overreacts to every fu*king thing.
I'll say again, it's Twitter not his job so what he says on there I dont take seriously or hold him to any standards on.
wait so you're saying that public figures should be allowed to say whatever they want, whether it be racist or otherwise offensive, and suffer no consequences in their work place as long as they don't say it while on the job or on air?
that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard. if skip bayless goes on twitter and tweets racist, dumb stuff everyone's gonna be calling for him to apologize or ESPN to discipline him.
that's just part of their job, part of being a public figure. everything a person who is in the public eye says will be judged and scrutinized and it will reflect on the organizations that employ them.
usually in america no matter what a media figure says they just have to apologize, go to sensitivity training, serve a suspension, etc. and everyone moves on no matter how racist what they said was. but the point is the employer still has to discipline them to show that they don't condone that type of behavior and it's not okay.
jason whitlock's comments weren't that bad actually, but still offensive. he should just issue an apology and everyone will forget about it in a week.
