David Arquette issued an apology for the racist remarks he spouted on Fox and Friends last week. In case you missed it, the "actor" first claimed that he was an expert on Latinos because he was born and raised in Los Angeles, and then said that while some Latina women have good judgment, others are "just nuts" in reference to Sonia Sotomayor's Supreme Court Nomination.
In the statement he issued on Friday, he claimed he was trying to be humorous, not offensive. "I have nothing but love and respect for Latina women and women in general of all cultural backgrounds. What saddens me most is that it took away from the issue of Hunger in America, for which I was on the show to begin with," he continued. "I work in a pantry in Venice California with a Hispanic woman named Delpia (who has been feeding people at St. Joseph's Center for 29 years) and she is my personal hero. Having been raised in Los Angeles I have grown up with a deep and profound love for the Latino culture."
Ugh, for some reason, his apology just served to piss us off even more. Mainly because it reeks of the same, "I can't be racist because I have some Black friends" argument that idiots regularly spew. Tell us: What do you think about his apology? Was it sincere or just another example of a famous person backtracking after showing the world their true colors?
