After all these comments that we got on that article that has been deleted by now, I thought I would try to get in contact with Kerry to see if he has something to say about this situation. Kerry’s friend, Anthony Koch who originally posted the interview with Kerry Gibson, answered me this:
Well, Kerry issued this apology for our paper. So here this is and if there is anything else he wants to say, I will get back to you. Thanks for this.
To all that it may concern,
I wanted to apologize for the article that was written a few days ago that has had everyone angry with me. I did not mean things that were said in it. It was a question and answer piece done via the Internet, and the reporter could not tell my tone of voice, and notice that I was saying a lot of the things I said jokingly. It was a terrible lapse in judgment by myself, and I apologize sincerely for that. Things that were written in it were misworded and misunderstood. I do like Lithuania, and I am glad that I am here playing basketball. I hope that you will be able to understand that this was just all a big misunderstanding. Although I know this will not be easily forgotten by the people of Lithuania and around the globe, I truly hope we can move past this embarrassing incident and everybody can accept my deepest and most sincere apologies.
I just hope it is not ripped out of the context again.
EDIT: I just got an email from Anthony Koch: Just so you know, I reposted the story to fix the factual errors that were given to me. The stats are up to date as of Thursday, so I took it down to fix that, but it is back up online.
