"Gibson: ‘To anyone offended by my comments, I’m sorry.’"

On his Fox News show today, John Gibson apologized for his recent comments mocking the death of actor Heath Ledger. “I’m sorry that some took my comments as anti-gay and insensitive,” said Gibson. “Once again, to anyone offended by my comments, I’m sorry.” Watch it:

We appreciate Gibson’s apology and kindly suggest that he refrain from making disparaging, “anti-gay” comments in the future.

UPDATE: Gibson said the same apology on his radio show this evening, though before mentioning that his comments were “anti-gay and insensitive,” he added the words “some gay groups.”
