Breaking News: Someone Says Something; Others Offended

Posted: Updated:

Several groups are angry with something said by someone in front of some people somewhere. One of the people's representatives said:

Something said by he or she to some people somewhere was, at the very least, deeply offensive to some people and, at worst, shattering in its immorality to some people and those people somewhere will not be satisfied until he or she issues an apology commensurate with something said by him or her.

Someone issued a statement to the people somewhere through a spokesperson which read, in part:

He or she is deeply sorry that something he or she said offended some people somewhere. If possible, he or she would take back something he or she said to some people somewhere and, instead, say something which would not offend said people.

Another one of the people's representatives quickly responded:

His or her apology is not sufficiently sincere or heartfelt for the people somewhere nor commensurate with the magnitude of something said to some people somewhere and comes too late to undo the extensive damage caused by something he or she said to said people.

Someone then appeared in a highly visible public forum where he or she apologized publicly, saying:

I humbly, deeply, and sincerely apologize for something I said to some people somewhere. Additionally, I apologize for anything I said/am saying/will say/thought about saying/am thinking about saying/will think about saying to any person or group to whom I said/am saying/will say/thought about saying/am thinking about saying/will think about saying it.

Representatives of some people somewhere, busy with a situation involving something else said by someone else in front of some other people somewhere else, have not had something to say for some time.

Commentators and bloggers have split over what someone said, with some applauding the subsequent statement and apology by someone and some insisting that something said by someone reveals something more serious to people somewhere else. One blogger noted:

The statement and apology someone made for saying something in front of some people somewhere indicates that progress has yet to be attained but may someday or somehow.
