Levi Johnston Thrusts Himself Back Into Limelight With Apology
July 7, 2010
U.S. (ChattahBox) – Just when his name was happily fading off into distant memory, Levi Johnston – also known as the Bristol Palin baby daddy – has thrown himself back into the attention of the media, this time to say how very sorry he is to the Palin family.
According to People, Johnston wants to publicly apologize to the Palins for things that he says were lies, which he told in an attempt to get back at Bristol after their breakup.
“Last year, after Bristol and I broke up, I was unhappy and a little angry. Unfortunately, against my better judgment, I publicly said things about the Palins that were not completely true. I have already privately apologized to Todd and Sarah. Since my statements were public, I owe it to the Palins to publicly apologize.”
The logic is sound enough, and it was a good move for his son to see that his dad apologized. But, that could have been done in private. “Owing” a public apology would suggest that anyone actually cares about the feud, Johnston, or the Palins.
Considering it is the passionate wish of many in this country (and around the world) to forget any of the names involved in this story, it seems a bit like a stunt to get an interview.
And, before it is pointed out, yes…I do see the irony in doing this story about how no one is interested. Trust me, I died a little inside while writing it.
