Fox News analyst apologizes for bigoted tweet
28 April 2012

Fox News contributor Monica Crowley is walking back one of her tweets. On Thursday, 26 April,  she wondered about Sandra Fluke's announcement about being engaged.

'To a man,' the Fox News analyst asked on Twitter, as reported by the Huffington Post.

Since February Fluke has been in the cross hairs of Republican commentators when she publicly advocated birth control insurance coverage. Radio personality Rush Limbaugh called her a a 'slut' on his program. Eventually he apologized.

When Crowley's tweet was questioned she doubled down, offering an assessment on how the left lacks any jovial perspective.

'I love exposing the Left's total lack of a sense of humor.'

Fluke, a Georgetown law school student, went on MSNBC and wondered about Crowley's homophobia.

'I’m not going to let this kind of thing get to me personally. What really bothers me about it [is] the blatant homophobia in the comment, and the idea that that is an acceptable thing to say publicly.'

Yesterday, 27 April, Crowley returned to Twitter to apologize.

'Regret my tweeted question caused a stir. I certainly [and] unequivocally apologize to Sandra [and] anyone else I offended. Not my intention,' Crowley wrote, as reported by Think Progress.
