UFC's Dana White Apologizes on Video

April 3, 2009
As promised to GLAAD, Dana White used his video blog (published on the UFC's YouTube Channel) to apologize for the use of his anti-gay slur. Wednesday evening GLAAD posted the offensive video and demanded an apology from White and the UFC. Yesterday, GLAAD announced White would apologize. From the beginning of his most recent video, White immediately acknowledges that his words hurt and offended people. But more importantly, he went on to say that attacking anyone because of their sexual orientation is flat out wrong:
The last thing I would ever want anyone to think about me or think is cool is to go out and attack somebody because of their sexual orientation.
GLAAD will continue to work with the UFC to ensure that it's inclusive and safe for all LGBT trainers, fighters and fans.
