The two-time Olympic champion feels HORRIBLE today and not just because he has a black-eye and a hangover!
We think Shaun White is an athlete who takes his responsibilities as a role model and an ambassador for his country seriously and he showed that today in a Facebook statement he released to his fans.
His apology for the bad decisions that led to Sunday's arrest was direct and sincere.
"I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests. I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I'm truly sorry for my poor behavior."
Yikes! It's obvious his pride and his ego are bruised more badly than his face!
We realize the gold medal winner is severely embarassed after destroying a hotel room and being caught drunk in public but we appreciate his efforts to take responsibility for his actions.
Everyone makes occasional mistakes and we can only hope Shuan learns from his lapse in judgement!
