At least she's taking some sort of responsibility.
Hilary Swank got into trouble a couple months ago when she attended a party for Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, a man who is accused of torturing and murdering.
She later apologized for the incident, but then made an appearance this week on The Tonight Show, her first since the controversy, to say she was in deep "regret" and "shame on me," for not doing her research beforehand.
Now, Joan Rivers has decided to speak up against Tracy for his publicist's decision to apologize:
"He shouldn’t apologize. Gay fans? What are they doing seeing him anyhow? Why aren’t they watching me and Kathy Griffin? What are they doing at this show? He’s lost his gay fan.'"
“If they can actually get Tracy Morgan to be coherent and talk against homophobia even if he doesn’t mean it, I think that’d be all right, because there are people even dumber than Tracy Morgan, who look up to Tracy Morgan as an ignorant role model."
"I’ll tell you, the biggest crime of all is that Tracy Morgan isn’t funny. You know what he should be apologizing for? For charging $86 to see him."
We're gonna have to disagree, Joan. We're pleased that he's making the effort, and as we said before, we think it's great that he's going to such lengths to make things right.
Do U agree with Joan? Should Tracy NOT have apologized?
A lesson that unfortunately has to be learned sometimes!
After Andy Cohen made some less-than-stellar remarks about The PS 22 Chorus and their appearance at the Academy Awards, he rightfully apologized, and choral director Gregg Brienberg smartly used the controversy as a way to teach the kids that sometimes, adults say and do things without thinking just as often as children, and it's important to recognize when you're wrong and admit to it!
Check out the video the group made for Andy, and their performance of Apologize by OneRepublic (above)!
Breinberg also included the following message:
The PS22 Chorus responds to the criticism and the apology from Andy Cohen regarding the kids' Oscars performance. Classy and articulate kids expressing themselves honestly. And Andy, we kid, it's never too late to apologize, and we truly appreciate it, but next time take a lesson from the kids…..
All in good fun!
And the great song is Apologize by One Republic, and it was cool trying 3 part harmony.
What thoughtful comments!
And we're glad that they all openly expressed their feelings about the situation, whether they accept his apology or not!
It's so important to recognize how you're feeling and to be honest with yourself!
Hopefully now they can all put what happened behind them and focus on what's most important: the music!
We'll you're in luck, because Bey's former manager and father Matthew Knowles, is offering up a day-long intensive course at Houston Community College Central on September 13, titled, "The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?"
