Celebrity apologies are an art form. Put it this way: if you're a celeb and you've messed up, there's a certain way to say sorry to fans. You've got to admit you were wrong, while still retaining your respectful reputation. After all, your career depends on it.
Mike Richards has only recently ascended to the throne of 'Jeopardy!' host following the death of Alex Trebek, and he's got himself in hot water before his first season has even been released. Richards made some derogatory and demeaning comments about women on a podcast he hosted between 2013 and 2014. These episodes have resurfaced and revealed that Richards frequently made insensitive jokes about women's weight and appearances, as well as a number of off-colour jokes about his female colleagues.
Richards made a statement to apologize for his past behavior: "It is humbling to confront a terribly embarrassing moment of misjudgment, thoughtlessness, and insensitivity from nearly a decade ago. Looking back now, there is no excuse, of course, for the comments I made on this podcast and I am deeply sorry."
