…or so it would seem.
Granted, Richards’ statements were obviously cropped, and maybe he said a lot more than what made the air. Still, I’d feel better if Richards had been more explicit about exactly what happened. Something like, “I’m a freaky rageoholic and I flipped out and said the worst, most hurtful thing I could possibly think of, and I succeeded, horribly, as you all saw, and I’m ashamed of myself. I’m an asshole, and I hope someday you can forgive me.”
But at least he looked legitimately freaked out, which is more than I can say for Mel Gibson. (Nevertheless, that line about “the weird thing is I’m not a racist!” stinks pretty hard.)
