If you thought Will Smith’s apology to Chris Rock for slapping him at the Oscars was stiff and insincere, you are not alone. There’s a noteworthy difference between saying “I apologize” and “I am sorry. ”

According to Google: There is a subtle difference between saying “I’m sorry” and “I apologize.” An apology is a formal admission of a wrongdoing. It may or may not be heartfelt — i.e., a person may apologize without feeling remorseful. On the other hand, saying “I am sorry” is usually seen as being a truer admission of regret.

Not only did Will offer a stiff “apology” but he made a subtle reference in his speech that implied that Rock’s innocuous joke about Jada’s bald head was meant as an insult – thus giving him a good reason to become violent. All in all, it seems Will Smith made that speech because he was pressured into it- NOT because thinks he was wrong. Will’s speech was actually just a PR move to get fans to forgive him.
Congrats to Chris Rock for not responding favorably!


We were delighted to hear that Elin Nordegren has no intention of appearing with her husband Tiger Woods tomorrow when he makes his “speech.” At LAST, a wife with the backbone to refuse to stand by her man when he is SOOO wrong. Too many wives meekly lurk “supportively” beside their disgraced mates when the guys make insincere public apologies simply because they got caught. We’ve seen evangelist’s wives and political wives (yes Hillary, we mean YOU) do it, and it’s a step BACK for feminism. Pretending to support a louse makes the wife seem as dishonest as the husband. Forgive him in private, but do NOT support him in public! Don’t disappoint us, Elin!
