The Apology Game Begins

Opie and Anthony, apologize for joking about raping Condoleezza Rice. Bosses issue statement, too. Stay tuned!

May 11, 2007 – TheScroogeReport.com Post

Opie and Anthony, whose full names are Anthony Cumia and Greg “Opie” Hughes, apologized to listeners on Friday’s show, according to news reports.

“We apologize to the public officials for comments that we made on our XM show on May 9th. We take very seriously the responsibility that comes with our creative freedom and regret any offense that this segment has caused,” they said.

And from the suits:
“We deplore the comments made on Wednesday’s ‘Opie & Anthony Show,”‘ XM spokesman Nathaniel Brown told The Associated Press on Friday. He would not say whether XM planned to take disciplinary action.

I still don’t get it. An apology to “public officials”? Tell you what, forget the apologies for now and look into why you, Opie and Anthony, are so interested in negative attention.

 Hey! Opie, Anthony, and listeners…isn’t it time for a new tune?

  1. Like said in the intro of their show.
    They are just words, if YOU don’t like it change the station Dxxxx BAG

  2. From my This Week’s Top Scrooge post:

    I’ve searched the Bible and found something that shows the importance of words…something that radio personalities should seemingly understand better than most.

    “But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” – Matthew, Chapter 12, verses 36,37.
