Head coach Marvin Lewis released another apology this afternoon after calling Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel a midget on a local sports talk radio show.
Lewis apologized to Manziel, the Browns and Cleveland fans Monday night. This afternoon he included little people in his mea culpa.
Here is his statement:
“I’m aware that my comment on local radio last night was offensive to people of short stature and to their families and friends. It was thoughtless on my part to use the word I did, and not excusable, and I greatly regret it. I since have read about this issue on the Little People of America website. I understand it better, and as I have apologized to Johnny Manziel and the Cleveland Browns community, I offer the same to all others who I offended, and I pledge that I will learn from this. I hope that my mistake and the resultant publicity may serve at least to help others not make similar insensitive comments in the future.”
