Never Apologize: Celebrity Apologies are Worthless

I’ll say this once. I will never apologize for anything I say or do online. When celebrities apologize in public, they’re not being sincere Apologizing on twitter or the internet is stupid and pointless for several reasons.

1. You have time to proofread what you write before hitting the “tweet” button. So if you’re going to post something no matter how offensive it is, you stand by it. I live by “I said what I said > Let me apologize & explain myself”. You have all the time in the world to edit, spellcheck, & make sure you will stand by what you say regardless of consequences.

2. People will never respect you if you say things you don’t mean and don’t live by example. I am by no means perfect, but I strove to be better than I was yesterday. So I’m living by example to the best of my ability.

3. Celebrities and public figures only apologize after they realize that their actions have consequences, which does tell me something about most people. No matter how rich or famous they are, most people’s moral compass goes only as far as stopping when they can no longer get away with their words or actions. They have no honor or integrity. Therefore apologies on the internet are meaningless, especially public ones.
