Kobe Bryant's apology for mouthing a homosexual slur after receiving a technical foul against the Spurs on Tuesday night won't go down as one of the most touching apologies an athlete has ever uttered. But it's still an apology of sorts, technically, even if it reads more as "it doesn't mean what you think it means" explanation.â†µ
"What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone."â†µ
Yup, another "apology" without the words "I'm sorry" in it. I sort of understand the idea that what is said in the heat of the battle should not be used against someone for the rest of their life, but Bryant still did use the phrase "f*****" and should own up to it more than this. This was Kevin Garnett "cancer patient" bad.
