Video: John Mayer Breaks Down in Tears During Onstage Apology — Accepted or Unforgivable?

John Mayer took the time during his show last night to apologize for his hurtful and insensitive comments in Playboy. His interview made headlines all over yesterday for everything from his quotes on Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston to the way he talked about race and homosexuality. He quickly took to Twitter to start saying sorry and he got very emotional on stage during yesterday's show. He said, "In the quest to be clever. I completely forgot about the people that I love and that love me . . . I think it's important that you know that everybody on this stage is here playing with me not because they condone what I say in any interview . . . they're on this stage because they support myself as a possible future grown-up." He also says he will be taking a break from the media. There's lots more, so watch the video and tell us what you think about his long-winded apology — accepted or unforgivable?

He shouldn't have apologized. I honestly don't think what he said was so bad, people have just gotten overly sensitive. Whenever they hear certain words they start to scream without thinking if what was said was really so offensive. The only one he should have apologized to (in private) is Jessica for talking about private things in public.

when you make your career off of public opinion, guess what.... you can say whatever you want, and then you have to deal with the backlash. he made some really crass remarks in regards to women, and i'm surprised at how many of you are supprting him. i guess as long as he still dicks your group, his offense to others doesn't matter.

As I posted earlier, it is not a word I would choose to say. That said, I think that people need to decide whether the word is on the table or not. Either it is vitrolic hateful world that conjures up a world of inequality, or it is something that you say to your friends. I am sorry, it can never be both. And one group can't take ownership over one meaning and be offended when anyone else tries to use it under that meaning. I personally think the word has the former meaning, which is why I wouldn't use it. But I think people need to make up their minds about it. As a society or a societal subset, you can't have it both ways. That's my point.

i can't wrap my mind around the, "they use the word, so i can too". why would you want to use the same language as idiots? if for no other reason, i would not want to be lumped in with them. but that's just me. on another note people respond to matters they believe effect them. so yeah there are going to be some people who give John a pass on his remarks regarding Black people, because they simply don't care. same for his comments about Jewish and gay people. i know that's not a surprise is it?

43.. I think what he did to Jessica Simpson is worse for the same reason Kayne's actions were despicable. They are both examples of a pervasive lack of respect for others (particularly women) in this country. We have seen numerous examples this year of people showing no respect for others on a personal or professional level in order put themselves in the spotlight. It is disgusting and I am sick of it.Like I said before ... I don't think a word should be off limits. If one group is going to say it, then everyone should be able to. If you don't want others to use it, don't use it yourself. It's that simple.
