No Words... Come Clean Edition
Wow. I'm honestly shocked. I never thought I'd see the day that a player of A-Rod's caliber would openly admit to using steriods so this is a bit...let's just say "surprising." I still think the proper response when the media decides to get on their high horse about these things is to absolutely refuse to apologize on any grounds whatsoever because you shouldn't have to apologize to people you don't know for things that don't concern them. Michael Phelps should have collectively told everybody who was "deeply disturbed" by his completely harmless experimentation with a bong at a party to shove it up their asses.
Personally, if I ever I get famous enough where I get caught in a situation where the media demands for a public apology after I'm found in a Las Vegas hotel room with a under-aged prostitute and my face buried in a mound of cocaine Scarface-style that I will not be holding a tearful, contrite press conference with my wife and kids looking utterly mortified standing next to me. In fact, I look forward to making things unequivocally and exponentially worse when I not only refuse to apologize but I hire private investigators to look into the lives of anybody who writes some hypocritical, masturbatory exercise in self-righteousness about me in a newspaper and proceed to air out their dirty laundry in a national televised interview with Katie Couric. This is the proper response for celebrities when they get involved in a meaningless "scandal." Celebrities do not owe us anything. If I were to get caught in a scandal like that, I would apologize to my friends and family for letting them down but I'm not apologizing to some strangers for shit that does not concern them nor do they really care about. However, I would pledge my undying devotion to any person who ever pulled a stunt like that in real life. I respect that level of misanthropy in a human being.
