More and more we are hearing the phrase, “I’m sorry” from celebrities for something they said recently or in the past. But are they really sorry or just sorry they are losing their corporate sponsors and celebrity status?
The latest is phony Paula “You all” Dean whose company is being sued for employment practices and during testimony it was brought out that she used the “N” word some time back. Immediately she lost her cooking show, and sponsors have been pulling out left and right.
Today she was on ABC boo-hooing; whether it was because she was telling the truth or she was upset by her recent revenue loss.
A wise man once told me before I spoke to make sure the motor in my brain moved before the motor in my mouth; good advice I have tried to live with, but we all make slips.
As a first generation Italian I have heard all the negative remarks about my heritage there is. I bite my tongue, consider the source and move on. I don’t appreciate the slurs; I have a blended family and I don’t appreciate the use of the “N”word, but life goes on.
I often recall one of the towns drunks telling me once while I was still in high school, how nice a man my dad was even though he was I Talian.
I kinda feel for those celebrities; sometimes unthinkable remarks are made under stress; we all make them.
