Manawaroa apologizes, denies racist intent


Tyler Manawaroa caused an uproar on MMA media sites and Twitter yesterday when he posted a racist photo to Instagram. His fellow cast mates and coaches were quick to admonish him for and today he posted an official apology:

I posted a pic on instagram that has offended very sorry !! As you can imagine that was never the intention. .as a dark skinned person myself who has delt with racism all my life ,I was making fun of the stereotype that all dark people go to jail..which is obviously not true....hence the irony...but I will remove it and I apologize for offending you

Lol, you would look like such an idiot giving k-mart a resume. I'm sure they would laugh and hand you a job application.

Its ok for millionaire DW to make a homophobic video blog rant but this kid makes a dumb decision, apologizes for but it possibly costs him a career.I hear kmart is hiring, might want to start handing out your resume Manawaroa.I wonder what colour Ferrari DW is going to drive today?

Pretty much all your responses to me are you missing obvious sarcasm. Is this your angle or are you just stupid?

Got it. For some reason I was looking for the hashtags under the photo and completely missed them over to the right. Fair enough. I apologize for busting your balls.

It doesn't even sound like Tyler's apologizing for making that racist post - only that he's sorry other people were offended by it. At least that's how it came across when I read it.

All of us do. From what I understand from my friend who's in this scene amongst others... He got real suspicious of people around him after the whole Comedy Central thing. Fired a few people and packed it in. The money thing, the racial aspect of the show, and the false rumors really did a number on him.

word, I'll defer to you it just seemed like a raw deal, he could have a web series and be incredibly successful with it IMO and not have to deal with anyone, in fact I wish he would.
