Well, I’ll be dipped in shit. Ms. DiFranco has taken to her Facebook page to make another attempt at apologizing, and this one is…actually not bad at all:
Notice: This one includes the word “sorry” and something about how she did something wrong.
This is better. This is the shape of a real apology. I’m not yet convinced that she quite understands the objections to Nottoway Plantation, but at least she’s not doubling down anymore. She’s very nicely asking for someone to toss her a rope so she can climb out of her hole.
What am I doing with this New Year’s Eve?
Staying warm, enjoying the quiet, and having ramen noodles and terrifyingly sugary cocktails all to myself.
Also, I’m not quite finished razzing Ms. DiFranco for her display of White Tears. LOOK AT WHAT I MADE, JUST NOW. LOOK AT IT.
She didn’t actually say “sorry” or “apologize” or “regret,” so I put one in there myself.
While all the other queer/pro-choice/crunchy feminists couldn’t get enough of her, I was unimpressed.
Even so, I thought she was better than this White Tears-soaked, derailment-laden Fauxpology.
Either way, this is the sort of celebrity ass-showing that gets me having way too much fun on Twitter.
