Default UFC President Raises Ire With Blog, Apologizes

UFC PRESIDENT RAISES IRE WITH BLOG, APOLOGIZES

Quote:
Just one day after it ricocheted around the Internet, a video blog posted by UFC Dana White has raised the ire of several media outlets and one media watchdog group.

The controversy erupted over White’s comments involving Sherdog.com news editor Loretta Hunt, in which he used profanity and derogatory language while addressing a report Hunt authored on the UFC’s credentialing process in regards to fighters' managers.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, or GLAAD, wrote a piece asking White to apologize for his comments, namely using a slang term for homosexuals.

The UFC later pulled the video from its YouTube account.

On Thursday, GLAAD spokesman Ted Rybka confirmed to ESPN.com that White would make a new video apologizing for his comments.

In a text message sent to Yahoo! Sports reporter Kevin Iole the same day, White commented on the situation via text message, stating, “that was my side. No secrets.”

Several mainstream news websites have picked up on the story, including USAToday.com, SI.com, ESPN.com, and Yahoo! Sports.com

White’s new video was released late Thursday night, where he addressed the controversy.

“I chose some words that offended and hurt some people,” he said. “Anybody who knows me knows that I would never, ever maliciously attack somebody who wasn’t attacking me, and as far as the gay and lesbian community, my comments were not directed towards them.

“I have no problem with the gay and lesbian community; I’m actually a supporter of many of their issues. The last thing that I would ever want anybody to think about me or think is cool is to go out and attack somebody because of their sexual orientation. That was not my intention, that’s not the way I said it, and I apologize for anybody that I offended or hurt.”

DANA WHITE'S VIDEO APOLOGY
