Geraldo ‘Apologizes’ for Suggesting Trayvon’s Hoodie Killed Him
Geraldo Rivera sent an email to Politico today with one of the most absurd non-apology apologies I’ve ever read, for saying that Trayvon Martin’s hoodie was responsible for his killing. With an apology this lame and insincere, you have to wonder why he even bothered.
“I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my ‘very practical and potentially life-saving campaign urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies,’” Rivera said in an email to POLITICO Tuesday.
Rivera said that “by putting responsibility on what kids wear instead of how people react to them I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager,” and that he was offering a “heartfelt apology” to anyone he may have offended in his “crusade to warn minority families of the danger to their young sons inherent in gangsta style clothing; like hoodies.”
Fatuous egomaniac said what?
