Geraldo Apologizes for Hoodie Remark
Geraldo apologizes for suggesting that Trayvon Martin’s apparel was a contributing factor in his death, but doesn’t note his own hypocrisy in wearing the same thing.
Fox News Channel commentator Geraldo Rivera said Tuesday that he’s sorry for suggesting that a hoodie worn by unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was as much responsible for his death as the neighborhood watch captain who shot him. Rivera said a conversation with his oldest son on Monday convinced him he was wrong. Rivera said it was the first time 32-year-old Gabriel Rivera had said he was ashamed of something his dad had said — and it caused the dad a sleepless night. “He had never, ever used language like that,” Rivera said. “It was like, ‘Whoa, what have I done that would make my son say that?'”
Kudos to Geraldo for apologizing.
