Responding to GLAAD’s request, Ultimate Fighting Championship founder Dana White has issued an apology for using a gay slur in a posting on his video blog.
“As far as the gay and lesbian community, my comments were not directed toward them. I have no problem with the gay or lesbian community. I’m actually a supporter of many of their issues. The last thing that I would ever want anybody to think about me or think is cool is to go out and attack somebody because of their sexual orientation. That was not my intention. That’s not the way I said it and I apologize for anybody that I’ve offended or hurt.”
