    I will be tuning in. He really stuck his foot in his mouth on that radio program today, so anything he says will be BS in my eyes, but at least an on air apology sends a message out that it won’t be tolerated.

    WTF??? I can’t believe what those idiots were saying on the radio show. This is just so very wrong — and frightening — and enraging.

  3. planetangst ( Studio57) says:

    That was thre lamest apology ever. Never mentioned Adam’s name ( which I guess isn’t that bad because it offended gays as a group) but said “if they offended” they apologize.

  4. jtfacts says:

    The insult was to a much larger group than Adam so I’m fine with his name not being mentioned. The “if” is weak, but just a year ago, there wouldn’t have even been a weak apology. Times are a changing!

    • fuzzywuzzy1 says:

      Yes, the fact that an apology was aired is a step forward. There wasn’t an “if” in the apology aired on the Daily 10:

      • jtfacts says:

        No, I see it was a “may have offended”, which is similarly wishy washy. Since people were offended enough to complain, there’s no “may” about it.

      • fuzzywuzzy1 says:

        You’re right, jtf. The sentiment is the same. They fell short of admitting that Catherwood’s joke was offensive (which it was).

    So, I guess the remark wasn’t offensive. It’s my problem because it was ofensive to me. What a bunch of bull!

    3 days of hate tweets is a lot. Don’t worry, tomorrow there will be a big announcement sure to make the haters filled with joy. You win.

      That statement even sucks. You know what , if you are just apologizing because you are getting hate mail don’t even bother. Adam never apologized for the AMA’s.

      And the guy saying he is getting death threats is Full Of shit. Unless he is getting DM’s, no one is threatening him on twitter.

      Where is this big announcement supposed to be?

    • fuzzywuzzy1 says:

      Oh, I’m sure that he’s getting death threats, but probably not many. It sounds like the BSC Glamberts have been threatening this guy, which is horrible. There are a lot of reasonable people who are responding to this issue in a rational way, but as always, the hysterical, abnormally invested fans are the ones who are diverting attention from the real issue.

  7. jtfacts says:

    I’m okay with insincere apologies. I’ve certainly made and received my share over the years and it’s still an apology.

    As far as the other E! guy–that looks like his personal twitter. I don’t see an E! logo or anything. I think he’s entitled to his opinion, even if I disagree with it, and I don’t think he has to apologize for it. If he said something on air, that’d be different. Obviously, people are entitled to tweet their opinions of his opinion to him. Personally, now that there’s been an apology, I’m done with this.

    As far as the announcement, maybe the THS? Or that dj person not hosting the show again?

  8. planetangst ( Studio57) says:

    I think they should just let it go altogether now and STFU. They are makiing it worse by turning this on the Glamberts.
