Tim Hardaway: ‘I Don’t Hate Gay People’

Tim Hardaway‘s apology tour continued on Sunday, with his taking to a South Florida radio station to once again say he’s sorry for ranting on and on about his homophobia. By now, you all know the comments he made on a Miami TV station – “I hate gay people” … “I am homophobic” – and this week, his publicist, agent, and the NBA are hoping you’ll know just how sorry he is.

“I don’t hate gay people,” Hardaway said. “I’m a good-hearted person. I interact with people all the time. … I respect people. For me to say ‘hate’ was a bad word, and I didn’t mean to use it.”

We’re just about through with the “Is an apology too little, too late?” argument. (Answer: Yes.) But our policy on calling bullshit when it’s stepped in? Yeah, that game is still on.

In case you missed Hardaway’s original rant, it’s after the jump.
