Minnesota State Representative Pat Garofalo finally apologized for ridiculous NBA tweet

Pat GarofaloAfter attempting to stick by his ridiculous NBA tweet, Pat Garofalo has finally decided that the best thing he can do is apologize and attempt to move on.

Garofalo’s Twitter account has been relatively quiet since his infamous tweet besides a few tweets defending his comment and a tweet bashing fallen pizza chain Sbarro. The account was awakened on Monday afternoon when Garofalo tweeted a link to his apology on the Minnesota House of Representatives’ website.


Here is Garofalo’s apology:

St. Paul- Rep. Pat Garofalo (R-Farmington) gave the following statement in response to his comments Sunday evening.

“In the last 24 hours, I’ve had the opportunity to re-learn one of life’s lessons: whenever any of us are offering opinions, it is best to refer to people as individuals as opposed to groups. Last night, I publicly commented on the NBA and I sincerely apologize to those who I unfairly categorized. The NBA has many examples of players and owners who are role models for our communities and for our country. Those individuals did not deserve that criticism and I apologize. In addition, it’s been brought to my attention that I was mistaken and the NBA policy on drug enforcement is stronger than I previously believed. Again, I offer my sincere apologies for my comments,” stated Rep. Garofalo.

And now Garofalo can go back to Minnesota House of Representative anonymity.
