David Arquette sat in a box on top of Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday to raise awareness for fighting hunger but still found time to declare Latina women are ‘nuts’ on (where else but?!) Fox News.
“I think Latina women are, I mean, it depends on the woman, but I think they are very, they have great judgment, but there are some that are just nuts. I’m just saying,” Arquette said earlier in the week on Fox News during a conversation about Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
Arquette finally realized how unbelievably racist his statement was, or probably got flack from a Latino group, and issued this apology on Friday:
“I would like to issue an apology for the comments I made on Fox and Friends. My intent was to be humorous and not offensive. I have nothing but love and respect for Latina women and women in general of all cultural backgrounds. What saddens me most is that it took away from the issue of Hunger in America, for which I was on the show to begin with. I work and a pantry in Venice California with a hispanic women named Delpia (who has been feeding people at St. Joseph’s Center for 29 years) and she is my personal hero. Having been raised in Los Angeles I have grown up with a deep and profound love for the Latino culture.”
Ok, so growing up in Los Angeles means he has a “deep and profound love for the Latino culture?” Did he grow up in the barrio or something? He probably had a few relationships with Latina women in his youth that ended badly and like a guy he thought they were “nuts.”
Blindie wonders what David Arquette thinks of African American women?
