7941: Sorry Excuses.
Extending apologies in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Kanye West continues to take personal moral inventory, using Twitter to apologize again to Taylor Swift for interrupting her during MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards. West also allegedly wrote a song for Swift. Wonder what will happen if it winds up winning an MTV Video Music Award.
• JetBlue Airways officially announced the flight attendant who went nuts and bailed out of a standing plane won’t get his job back. Is anyone really sorry to hear that?
• Burger King will stop buying palm oil from an Indonesian company accused of destroying rain forests. “[The Indonesian company’s] practices are inconsistent with our corporate responsibility commitments,” declared Burger King. However, firing its minority advertising agencies is apparently not inconsistent with Burger King’s corporate responsibility commitments.
