“My remarks were not meant to be offensive, I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context.”
“I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them.”
Apology accepted. May this be a lesson to all that stand to ridicule our community beyond good fun and the standard comedy “stereo typing” jokes. One thing is entertainment and the other is fueling a fire already burning especially in Arizona.
Mr. Williams’ skit was pre-meditated, to a certain extent, given that on the stage there were already various “patriotic/American” symbols such as the bold eagle and the U.S. flag. In retrospect, we believe that the heckler that interrupted his act, only accentuated a skit prepared for the Phoenix audience, the bedrock of the most fervent anti-immigration (legal or illegal) sentiment in the U.S.
Thanks to LatinoRebels.com for publishing one of the first articles that started this campaign for apology. Pa’lante!
