Marianne Williamson, a 2020 presidential candidate, made all the white people in the audience hold hands with the closest black person in the room at her Love America tour in 2018. She highlighted that many Americans may not be racist, but their education in the history of race is minimal. Williamson asks for white Americans to apologize for slavery, racism, lynching, and raping of black people as often as she can. I guess the presidential candidate thought if all other tragedies got reparations and apologizes, why can’t black people?
Denver Real Estate firm gets called out for making a parody video with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire theme song for marketing purposes. They were called insensitive because they have no black staff or agents. The firm also has a reputation of gentrification as well so they aren’t really respected around the community.
The fastest startup company ever has given a fake apology for marketing their nicotine product to kids. While teenagers are blowing out nicotine clouds, parents are becoming angrier with the vaping device. The CEO of Juul deflected any questions that pertained to him hooking teenagers to nicotine even though the company used heavy social media marketing. The FDA is calling this an epidemic because so many high schoolers can’t end a day without emptying a juul pod.

Say what you want, but there’s something beautiful about an overly lopsided game. Let me be clear: I’m not talking about a 21-0 shutout in a national championship game. That’s just boring, Alabama and LSU. I’m talking about Yale beating Dartmouth, 113-0, in 1884. I’m talking about scoring 91 points against your opponent like Davidson did last year, which somehow still happens.

Raisin company Sun-Maid and beer brands Tecate and Dos Equis pulled their sponsorships of the Washington Nationals’ Class AAA minor-league baseball Opens a New Window. affiliate this week after the team aired a video that placed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.,Opens a New Window. alongside Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro as “enemies of freedom.”
The Fresno Grizzlies faced widespread public criticism for the video, which aired on their stadium’s video scoreboard during a Memorial Day doubleheader. The video featured patriotic imagery, such as footage from President Ronald Reagan’s inaugural address, before shifting to a critical depiction of Ocasio-Cortez alongside the foreign dictators.
“Both Tecate and Dos Equis were sponsors of the Fresno Grizzlies. We do not support those views expressed in the video, that was aired during the Fresno Grizzlies game on Memorial Day. For that reason, we have ended this relationship, effective immediately and have let the team know of our decision,” a spokesman for Heineken, the parent company of the beer brands, said in a statement to FOX Business.
Sun-Maid was the first sponsor to pull its deal with the Grizzlies, noting Wednesday that it was “deeply disappointed” by the video.
“Sun-Maid does not support the views or sentiments expressed in the video, nor does it condone the airing of it. While the Grizzlies have apologized for this mistake, we are standing on the side of what we believe is right and terminating our sponsorship of the team.,” Sun-Maid said in a statement first obtained by the Sacramento BeeOpens a New Window.
Ocasio-Cortez personally addressed the video while responding to a tweet. The freshman congresswoman said she has received death threats over “hateful messages” broadcast by organizations.
The Grizzlies issued a lengthy apology for the video on Wednesday, noting that the in-stadium broadcast was a “grievous error” and that the team had not produced the video.
“The video was not produced, created or commissioned by the Fresno Grizzlies. It was carelessly taken from YouTube,” the Grizzlies said. “There are multiple versions of this video available on the internet, the version that our employee selected contained offensive content. The airing of the video in the ballpark was the result of an unintentional oversight by an employee who did not view the video in its entirety. The employee responsible has been reprimanded by the organization.”
Sun-Maid had prominent advertisements in the Grizzlies’ home stadium, Chukchansi Park. The Grizzlies’ website also lists Coca-Cola among its major sponsors.
Representatives for the Nationals and Coca-Cola did not immediately return requests for comment.
The athletes who won a championship in Asturias say the award highlights “structural sexism” in sport and have filed a complaint that has led to club resignations
When they saw the prizes they’d been given as a reward for their achievement in sports, the four women were speechless.
This is an affront to women’s dignity. Sport is a tool that should work toward equality
Besides their trophies, the winners in the female category of a squash championship in Asturias, in northern Spain, received a gift set containing two boxes of hair-removal wax, an electric callus remover, and a vibrator. The male winners did not get a beauty pack with their prizes.
The matter is being investigated by the Asturias Women’s Institute, and it has already triggered resignations at the club that organized the competition and at the regional squash federation.
“I felt surprise and indignation,” says Elisabet Sadó, the top winner in the female category, recalling the gala event held on May 11 in Las Vegas, located in the Asturian municipality of Corvera. The 37-year-old has been competing professionally for more than 15 years. She has been the world champion and is a seven-time national champion in a sport with few associated members: 1,550 men and 255 women in all of Spain, according to 2017 statistics.
The gift pack received by the four women.
Sadó, who works with victims of gender violence, says that this kind of attitude is “the foundation for all the structural sexism which, in its most extreme form, ends with women getting killed.”
Two days after the award ceremony, the four women who received prizes lodged a complaint with the federation, calling the gifts “sexist and out of place.”
The Oviedo Squash Club has admitted the presents “were inappropriate”
“Never in our history had anything like this happened,” says Maribel Toyos, a member of the federation’s governing board, who alerted the Asturias Women’s Institute about the matter.
“This is an affront to women’s dignity. Sport is a tool that should work toward equality,” says the institute’s director, Almudena Cueto. While current regulations do not include sanctions for this kind of behavior, draft sports legislation will make it mandatory for prizes to be the same for men and women.
The tournament was organized by the Oviedo Squash Club, which has admitted in a release that the presents “were inappropriate and should never have been given out.” The note adds that sponsors sometimes provide gifts, and that in this case, nobody checked first whether they were appropriate.
The absence of women in squash is one of the reasons why Sadó continues to participate in tournaments such as this one: to encourage girls to take up the sport.
Female squash players had already been dealing with other forms of discrimination such as lower salaries, fewer promotions and more run-down facilities than those enjoyed by their male counterparts. But they had never received such a gift pack before.
Two club managers and a federation leader have resigned, and the club itself might dissolve over the scandal. But Sadó says it is enough for people to simply take note of what has happened. “I hope this serves to ensure nothing like this happens again in the future, and to make people realize that sport is far from as equal as people might think.”
Spain is “shaking things up” with their national squash tournament. After the Women’s squash team won, they were awarded a hair removal kit and a vibrator. Horrible excuses were made when the reasoning of the gifts were given. Ladies, this apology is for you. In other news, many Americans are taking the time to randomly apologize to UK natives and foreigners for Trump’s actions. A fake quote from Trump went viral on the internet. The fake quote from the 80’s on Fox News were similar to the lines of if he were to run for president, he would run as a republican, because republicans are dumb. Hank Haney, a golf commentator, was recently suspended after saying racist and sexist remarks. One of the racist comments talked about how there were six Lee’s in the competition.
The Spaniards’ conquered Mexico 500 years ago with horses, guns, small pox, and swords. After long hard years of suffering from abuses of colonialism and conquest, The mexican president is demanding Spain to apologize. As this is a very delayed request, it would have been appreciated to acknowledge the past wrongdoings; Spain did not apologize for the indigenous people and colonialism. Looking towards Nashville, Tennessee, the 2019 NFL Draft was in town. While they began to set up, the Nashville Convention Center was considering cutting down apple trees for the stage. The surrounding community had quite an uproar and did not allow it to happen. Shifting towards the NCAA March Madness where 68 division 1 basketball teams match up for 4 elimination rounds. Every year it seems as if the tournament generates more revenue than the last, topping the billion mark last year. Michigan State’s Kenny Goins made the game winning shot which gave his university millions of dollars. One shot that allowed them to move on in the tournament while sending the Duke Blue Devils home and he still owes thousands of dollars to student loans. The NCAA makes billions of dollars off of athletes and the athletes see zero of the profit made. Granted, many athletes have their tuition paid for but it is in no way equivalent to the billions of dollars the NCAA makes. Players should get some type of monetary compensation.
Porn makes up more than 30% of internet content. However, on Charlie’s computer, it makes up about 95%… until his parents delete all of it. His reaction is priceless. On a more serious note, The Boeing Company had two crashes in a span of 5 months because of technology malfunctions and It led to hundreds of fatalities. The CEO made a very heartfelt apology. In the beautiful state of Ohio, a college government club sent emails that were calling the Congresswoman AOC, a “domestic terrorist” in a fundraiser email. Of course, there were deniers, saying that “they did not approve of the message.”
25,000 people in Japan were sterilized for about 50 years. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan decided to compensate those who were still alive which was about 5,400 people. They all got around 3.2 million yen, or about $28,600. As we transition from Japan to Washington state, nurses were accused of lallygagging in the bathroom. After a bill was created to give nurses uninterrupted lunch breaks, Senator Walsh made an outrageous comment about how nurses “spend a significant amount of time playing cards.” She now will shadow a nurse to see how difficult and time consuming the job really is. An angry fan base in Tampa erupted after a post season series loss in the NHL. Tampa had the best record in the league, they even broke the record for most wins in a season. They ended up getting swept in the first round 4-0 and after losing the series, they congratulated the Columbus Blue Jackets. The fans did not take it well. Many more stories and apologies are mentioned later in the podcast.

Apology of the week has 5 great ones from Bob Kraft to Pervy Professor to Volkswagen…all tried to correct their sins with various degrees of success. Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen, told his workers “EBIT macht frei” so they would work harder. What should be noted is that this phrase is very similar to the Nazi slogan “Arbeit macht frei” with both ending with “shall set you free.” The next story shared has something to do with friction and a cat.
