Lochte’s sister Megan apologizes for “racist” video

Ryan Lochte’s sister Megan Lochte is in hot water for making offensive remarks during a talk show appearance back in 2008, saying now it is misunderstood, that the “talk show” was actually a comedy skit. See US Weekly via BlackBook and Gossip Cop

This was not a real interview, and it in no way reflects my true feelings or persona whatsoever, The intent was to make fun of the ignorance of people who actually do not have an understanding of other cultures and speak in racist ways. The skit and my character were supposed to be making fun of ignorance … I do see how it was highly offensive to the viewer, but as seen by today’s widespread outrage, it clearly did increase awareness of the ignorance of those who are racist. … While the intent of the script was to shed light on cultural ignorance. I realize that in application it did offend people, and for that I apologize.

  1. Even if it was a comedy skit, I personally thought it went a little too far.
