We pity Tim Hardaway’s PR person, if he has one.
In an interview with The Miami Herald, Hardaway expressed his disappointment with himself and the public reaction to his now-infamous comments. The good news is that he’s “dealing with it like a champ.” But it looks like he’s still having some issues with actually interacting with the gays:
Hardaway, who attended a Heat game last week, said he soon will speak with a gay organization (he’s considering three) to ”make them understand” why he made his comments — which he apologized for — and to gain a better understanding of their perspective. He rejected an offer to spend a day with North Miami Mayor Kevin Burns, who is gay, “because that was more for publicity for him.”
Timmy also said that he’s got to make sure people know that he doesn’t hate gay people. You’re off to a good start, buddy. Also, doesn’t that sound a little like O.J. saying that he’s got to track down the real killers?
