Mike Greenberg Apologizes For Turning MLK Day Into Racial Slur

- By Bossip Staff Categories: In White Folks News, KKK, News

Greenberg says he’s a word-garbler! But he’s not above apologizing. Check out the ESPN host’s attempt at humble pie after the jump.

I just came home from the Knicks game and found out about the mess that was created by my garbling a sentence on our show this morning; I apologize for not addressing it sooner.

And I’m sorry that my talking too fast – and slurring my words – might have given people who don’t know our show the wrong impression about us, and about me.

I feel horrible about that, because nothing could be further away from who I am and what our show is about.

I would never say anything like that, not in public, or in private, or in the silence of my own mind, and neither would anyone associated with our show, and I’m very sorry that my stumble this morning gave so many people the opposite impression.

Now that Greenberg’s apologized, is this going to be something the public will quickly forget or will his turn of words haunt him for the rest of his career?

    To tell you the truth, half of the ppl making a big thing outta this probably say the “N” word out their mouth religiously! I tell you what, when we can learn to stop killing and degrading our own ppl, then maybe we can say something to them! I believe it was a mix-up of words that just had a bad combination! Let it go!!!

    Very funny, Schwartza. You’re an anti-semite. If it wasn’t for my people, your people wouln’t have the jobs you have today. Show some gratitude.

    HE MIXED THE WORDS, “KING” AND “JUNIOR” TOGETHER, IT WAS JUST A SLIP-UP PEOPLE!

    Learn how to spell, schwartza! Us jews are Gods’ chosen, while you schwartza’s are God’s forsaken. Why do think your kind always lag behind? Now being so sensitive.

    I agree with Imperial. “King Jr.” is what he was trying to say. But he said the k of King and jumped to Junior. Midway through, he corrected his brain’s miss fire and said Mr. King’s name correctly. How many times have we all mixed up words because we were talking too fast? It happens and you know what? I’m really not offended. Let it go…

    Sensitive — you don’t have any concept of IRONY, do you Abner ?

    he didn’t need to apologize I was listening to the show and he talks fast and got tongue-tied. He is not a racist unlike some of you idiots on here.
