Screen captures showed this apology from Burnette before his Facebook page was taken down: “Clearly, I have made a mistake and apologized for it and will pay for it. I received it as a text message from an acquaintance and immaturely put it up on facebook (sic) in the light of the election. Im (sic) not racist and apologize for offending you. I grew up on a ranch in a small town where that was a real thing and I need to grow up. I sincerely am sorry for being ignorant in thinking that it would be ok (sic) to write that publicly and apologize to you in particular… . I have to be more mature than to put the reputation of my team at stake and to spread that kind of hate which I dont (sic) even believe in. Once again, I sincerely apologize.”
It would be very interesting to hear the response of his (teammates)...........Or the SECRET SERVICE for that matter -- given that he implied physical violence directed at the President-elect. WTF. REALLY????? And I thought Lindsay Lohan's comment was bad. Amazingly, the folks over at aol fanhouse are split on whether or not his dismissal from the team was warranted. SERIOUSLY??????????????????
As Rachel Maddow says: I need someone to talk me down about this RIGHT NOW
