Here’s the thing, if you decide to base an entire VHS/DVD series about girls “going wild,” there’s gotta be something really wrong with you.
And clearly there is as we’ve learned from Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis over the years. Now, if you thought that Joe could not get anymore despicable, you’d be wrong. Remember at the beginning of the month when Joe was convicted for falsely imprisoning 3 women in his Bel Air home?
Well immediately afterwards, The Hollywood Reporter got this amazing quote from him, “Just to convict people because you’re jealous of them is retarded. And you’re a retarded jury and you should be shot dead. You should. If they had the death penalty for juries, you should be shot. Dead. By a firing squad.” Oh yeah, you read that right.
There’s a full video of the interview herethat you have to watch. Joe then goes on to talk shit about jurors, which one should never do especially when one is looking to appeal. “The problem with the jury system is that anyone who’s not smart enough to come with an excuse to get out of jury duty doesn’t get out. Only the stupidest of the stupidest people end up on juries, you know?”
So, you’ve got all that right? Well, after The Hollywood Reporter released this, Joe took it upon himself to release an apology letter. So sweet, expect for the fact that even in his apology letter he comes off as a total douche who can’t even properly apologize for saying that jurors should be murdered.
Please enjoy the whole apology letter:
I deeply regret the remarks attributed to me in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter. They were hurtful and do not reflect my true feelings. While I disagree with the jury’s verdict as I am completely innocent of the charges and intend to appeal, I was afforded a fair trial, and if I lose at the appellate level, I will reluctantly but fully accept the jury’s verdict. This was a 6 hour interview with The Hollywood Reporter where I detailed to the reporter all of the evidence and why I believed the evidence showed I am 100% innocent. The reporter also interviewed my attorney David Houston for over 3 hours, but failed to include one shred of evidence from the trial that proved beyond a reasonable doubt my innocence. I did NOT commit a crime at all whatsoever. All that was publicized were my most intemperate remarks that were borne out of frustration but with no intent to cause anyone harm. I am not, nor have I ever been a violent person. My comments are appalling, but anyone who has ever been wrongfully convicted of a crime that they did NOT commit would be as frustrated as I am. I want to apologize to all the jurors, the court, the City Attorney and my attorneys for my comments that were manipulated by the media, and please know I am truly ashamed of my conduct. I am truly, truly sorry. I hope everyone will understand I was not being serious and that I fully and deeply apologize for my remarks.
Sure I can appreciate the sentiment of this apology, but too bad that no one told Joe how to properly write one. Cause here’s the thing, asshat, when you apology it’s gotta be sincere and you can’t talk about yourself and how you “did NOT commit a crime at all whatsoever” the whole time.
So, what do you guys think of all this Joe Francis drama? Think is apology letter is the worst one we’ve had all year? Think he should be put in jail just for being a horrible human being? Sound off in the comments!
