<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3RjiVcIlhY">Tirade </a> and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3l-gRHjUNk">Apology</a>
Anyone else think the press is blowing this out of proportion? I seem to be in the minority around here in saying that his apology was sincere and his "tirade" wasn't that horrible.
Black people can call white people crackers, but white people can't use any names about blacks? I've heard comedians use spics, beaners and wetbacks about Mexicans but have never been that offended... I say, if you heckle, you're open game.
Then, I was watching CNN the other day and they interviewed two of the guys that were in the audience. The interviewer asked if he should give monetary compensation and they said, "He should be punished, yes." Well, whaddya know? Just happens to benefit them, que no? Why not have him serve his punishment by donating to charity or community service?
Now, alright, racial slurs are bad, but... come on, everyone's acting like the guy's a complete racist and I think he just made a bad decision while on stage.
