Having posted about Hoekstra’s Superbowl commercial, I feel it’s important that I also post the apology of Lisa Chan, the actress, for the part she played in the entire debacle. I must say, I kind of feel for her. Good on her for stepping up and speaking out:
“I am deeply sorry for any pain that the character I portrayed brought to my communities. As a recent college grad who has spent time working to improve communities and empower those without a voice, this role is not in any way representative of who I am. It was absolutely a mistake on my part and one that, over time, I hope can be forgiven. I feel horrible about my participation and I am determined to resolve my actions.”
“It was absolutely a mistake… I am determined to resolve my actions.” This young woman should open up a clinic and teach people what real apologies sound like. (Too $hort? I’m looking at you).
