Crying Hasselbeck Apologizes To Erin Andrews

After suggesting yesterday that stalking victim Erin Andrews was kinda asking for trouble with her sexy Dancing With the Stars outfits, View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has tearfully offered her apology for being an asshole. Forgive her, oh forgive her, please.

Watching Elisabeth cry and publicly apologize, it's clear that she knows she said some serious bullshit yesterday. Here's a recap of her wisdom:

"In light of what happened ... and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and try to peep on her in her hotel room ... I mean, in some way if I [was] him, I [would be] like, 'Man! I just could've waited 12 weeks and seen this — a little bit less — without the prison time!'"


Andrews said last night that she cried when she heard the remarks, and that Hasselbeck's insights were "a slap in the face to victims of stalking and sexual predators." And now, at least, it seems that Hasselbeck realizes that; she called Andrews in addition to the televised apology.

On a side note: Hasselbeck mentions that it was when she explained the incident to her daughter that Hasselbeck really realized what she did was wrong. If she can't keep herself in check, at least a five-year-old can.

Oh, thank you Urban Dictionary. Minus the racism aspect, this is spot on. It always baffles me when women like this get sympathy for stupid actions because of their delicate, feminine tears. Seriously, do you think Whoopi would have gotten sympathy if she cried at the drop of a hat? Oh, wait, she wouldn't say something that stupid.

"1. Disarming White Woman Tears

When a white female bodied person realizes that what they said was blatantly racist and begins to panic, defend said statement and cry until she has garnered sympathy and pity for her plight purely by virtue of social love of milky white skin and the ideal of white barbie womanhood
