    Phelps apologizes for 'bad judgment' after marijuana photo

    Phelps apologizes for 'bad judgment' after marijuana photo



    14-times Olympic gold medal winner Michael Phelps caught with bong cannabis pipe | News | News Of The World

    TAMPA (AP) Olympic great Michael Phelps has acknowledged "regrettable" behavior and "bad judgment" after a photo in a British newspaper showed him smoking marijuana.

    In a statement released to the Associated Press, the swimmer who won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Games conceded the authenticity of the exclusive picture published Sunday by the tabloid News of the World.

    Phelps said: "I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again."

    I say give him a break. He's young and pot smoking is a thing that is common among young people.

    So what. It sucks that he has to apologize for this.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    He can smoke weed after he is done swimming. Now we need him in tip top shape to win another 8 gold medals at the next summer olympics, not having the munchies.


    Though it is insanly stupid that he has to apologize for smoking weed, give him a break he's won 14 gold medals.
    If I had a billion dollars?

    What more do we want from him?
    He's talent is in swimming, and he's already proved he is one of the best. Let the boy smoke some.

    Don't give the illusion like you are clean. We all know it's not hidden anywhere, except behind the Sunchips (which compliment it nicely )

    I can't believe he ****ing apologized for that. People that apologize for no goddamn reason when they've done nothing wrong really lose my respect.

    His endorsements stem from the court of public opinion.

    Unless he finds mass acceptance for his actions or pacifies those who would shun him, it is in his personal self interest to avoid role model suicide and character assassination.

    But let's be realistic. Swimming isn't really a career you can bank on. He makes his money in endorsements. That's the reason he has to apologize.

    I do agree its stupid that society's view on Mary Jane has created this condition. I don't think it's any reason to lose respect for the guy.
