John Mayer: Failed to gain appreciation from Holly Robinson Peete
John Mayer is not happy at all. When Holly Robinson Peete was told by a friend that singer had called her "gorgeous" in a Playboy interview, she blushed and even told a famous news magazine that she felt flattered. However the apparent compliment turned sour when Robinson Peete read the full interview, containing the statement about African American women and his use of the N-word.
Robinson Peete, who herself had faced criticism from someone who felt that she had initially been an apologist for Mayer, adds, "I was disgusted and offended."
Robinson Peete reveals a famous newspaper that Mayer has reached out to her to apologize for involving her in his firestorm, but not for his actual words. The actress says that it is "time for him to really just drop the frat boy act" and "take responsibility for these hurtful comments."
A spokesperson for Mayer comments, "On Wednesday, John apologized for his remarks via Twitter and again in public that night. His remorse is genuine and he has expressed sincere regret for all of his word choices."
