UGA Athletic Director Apologizes To Ludacris For Condoms Debacle
UGA athletic director Greg McGarity has apologized to rapper Ludacris for supplying him with a box of condoms before a concert at the university. According to Online Athens, the AD wanted to ensure Luda had all the things listed on his tour rider but the contraception was uncalled for…
“I do want to take this opportunity to apologize to our board for mistakes we made with certain aspects of the details of an entertainment agreement,” McGarity said. “Few things in my professional life have bothered me more than this situation. There are no reruns in life so we need to turn the page, learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to make sure errors of this nature do not reoccur.”
Georgia paid Ludacris $65,000 for a 13-minute performance on April 16, but the three-time Grammy winner’s lengthy hospitality rider included condoms and liquor. Georgia landed the rapper to play on G-Day days after announcing it had not secured an act.
After the quarterly meeting, UGA president Jere Morehead said he “certainly appreciated that the athletic department took responsibility for some of the terms in that contract. Obviously in retrospect they should have done a more thorough job of reviewing all of the riders and removing those that were objectionable. I appreciate that he’s accepted that that’s what athletics should have done and what it will do moving forward.”
We hope Ludacris and his beautiful wife Eudoxie accept the apology….
