I know why Clint Trickett is apologizing, I am just not that big on fake apologies. He didn’t think before he tweeted and he dropped this gem on his timeline about watching sports with the ladies.
Dumb? Yes it was. Something to get all crazy about? Not really. But, this is the age of media where everything you do is magnified so Trickett who has been named the starting QB had to apologize.
“I sent out a tweet on July 17 which was misunderstood,” he said, via Allan Taylor of MetroNews. “I apologize for any confusion that the tweet has caused. I never intended for it to be derogatory or hurtful, but rather a tongue-in-cheek comment, while watching a CFL football game with a female family member. Again, I am sorry that my tweet was misunderstood, and I will use a better choice of words in the future.”
I am laughing at the apology, mainly because I didn’t take the Tweet seriously, but I guess some people did.
When you are an athlete or even a regular person remember anything you Tweet can be used against you.
