Dana White to Apologize for Homophobic Remarks on Vlog

UFC Prez Dana White went off on Sherdog's Loretta Hunt in his UFN 18 video blog below, calling her numerous names for a story she reported earlier in the week about fighter managers not being allowed backstage. But, it was using the word "faggot" that has White apologizing, as GLAAD(Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has demanded an apology and apparently will get it.

UFC’s Dana White Will Make it Right

April 2, 2009 by Ted

I just spoke with UFC President Dana White. White expressed remorse for a video blog posted April 1 in which he uttered misogynistic and anti-gay slurs (see here) and said he “never intended to hurt the gay community.”

He will issue a new video on the UFC’s YouTube page shortly in which he will apologize for the incident.

glaadBLOG will post White’s new video blog as soon as it’s released.

I will post the apology video as soon as it becomes available.
