Another insult, another “apology”. Have you noticed how often nowadays we see an insult or criticism thrown wildly about by well-known persons, soon followed by an “apology” when they get roundly hammered by social media, commentators, sponsors, etc.? One would like to believe that they had an epiphany of remorse at their poor behavior, but who cannot wonder whether it’s just crocodile tears and an effort to stem the bleeding … especially when advertisers and sponsors (and therefore $$$) are on the line?
