"Don’s discriminatory comments are offensive and they do not represent our values and what we stand for as a network," Sportsnet President Bart Yabsley said in a statement Sunday.
"We have spoken with Don about the severity of this issue and we sincerely apologize for these divisive remarks."
Ron MacLean apologized live on television ahead of Sunday night's Sportsnet broadcast.
#UPDATE: Coach's Corner co-host Ron MacLean has apologized to Canadians for the comments Don Cherry made regarding immigrants, saying in part, "I sat there, did not catch it and did not respond," during the opening of Rogers Hometown Hockey Sunday. https://t.co/sRkX3uyU9t pic.twitter.com/FRdtaaxQdo— CityNews Toronto (@CityNews) November 10, 2019
It would seem that everybody involved has apologized for Don Cherry's remarks.
Everybody except for Grapes, that is. And according to a report in the Toronto Sun today, it doesn't seem he's going to.
Speaking to Joe Warmington, Cherry noted that "I said my piece and I will leave it there."
As I wrote yesterday, Cherry’s rant on immigrants was also a gross disrespect to veterans.
What a disgrace.
