Ryan Lochte's Sister 'Clarifies' Racist Video: 'I Was Making Fun Of Ignorance!'

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooRyan Lochte

Ryan Lochte's sister earned herself a lot of criticism over the past few days.

After a video of her giving an extremely ignorant interview made its way around the internet, Megan Lochte's words hurt and offended countless viewers.

But now she's saying her 2008 interview was just a spoof. And even though she appeared in the video under her real name, she says she was playing a character.

To apologize for her post-Beijing Olympics trip, she issued this statement:

"I would like to apologize for the video that is circulating. This was not a real interview, and it in no way reflects my true feelings or persona whatsoever. During that time, I played a character on a television comedy show called Closing Time TV, which was a show with different comedy skits, fake news skits and staged interviews. The video in question reflects a skit from the show in which I acted as an ignorant guest on a talk show that made ignorant comments. The intent was to make fun of the ignorance of people who actually do not have an understanding of other cultures and speak in racist ways. The skit and my character were supposed to be making fun of ignorance."

Well. We can only hope she's being sincere here. But if that was intended to be satire, they could have made it a little clearer from the beginning.
