MICHAEL PHELPS ADMITS HE SMOKED WEED
Sunday, February 01, 2009
Don't tell grandma. America's hero admits he smoked the devil's drug! Oh, the shame of it all!
Yesterday, the News of the World published a picture of the gold medal-winning Olympic swimmer smoking marijuana from a bong. Instead of denying or ignoring the report, Phelps did something most celebs don't ever do. He admitted the picture was real and apologized.
Phelps released a statement to the AP reading, "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."
This is where this story should end. But it won't. It will be all over the place on Monday. Some idiots will suggest his medals should be taken away because he's a bad role model.
Cut the guy a break. He admitted he was wrong. Let's move on.
