Katie Moody Issues Apology For Tweeting Jokes About Torrey Smith Brother’s Death
I hope Katie Moody (@katiebrady12) has learned a lesson than we all should be aware of.
THINK BEFORE YOU TWEET
“Hey, Smith, how about you call your bro and tell him about your wi— ohhhh. Wait. #TooSoon?” @KatieBrady12
“The pats may have lost but at least none of them lost a family member. I’d say that’s a win.” @KatieBrady12
I remember my mom telling me when I was very young, it doesn’t matter what other people are doing, it only matters what you are doing. Ms. Moody might have thought this was cool because she saw others tweeting insensitive things, but she learned very quickly that doesn’t matter when you are the one who gets caught.
Here is here apology via the Baltimore Sun.
“I profoundly regret my thoughtless, tasteless, and completely inappropriate comment, and I deeply lament the pain that it has caused. I would like to apologize to Torrey Smith, his family, friends, and everyone who was distressed by what I said. I should have been offering sympathy and compassion for such a terrible and heart-breaking loss. I set high standards for myself as a person and as a fan, and I fell short of these standards. This was a horrible lapse in judgment that I will always regret. I am truly sorry.”
It is nicely written, but we will never know if she is truly sorry for what she did or just for the backlash that it got. I don’t think she should be fired from her job or receive death threats, but I don’t feel sorry for all the negative attention that has been thrown her way.
I always say that if you say something, say it with your chest. She did that and she had to deal with consequences.
Karma has a way of taking care of these things, so I will let it run its course.
