Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s rant has become the center of just about everything. It has become a trend on Vine, memes have been born, celebrities have weighed in on it and eventually led to Sherman apologizing.
“I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates … That was not my intent,” Sherman said Monday in a text message to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Sherman also addressed his postgame comments in an interview Monday with ESPN Radio on the “SVP and Russillo” show.
“Obviously I could have worded things better and could obviously have had a better reaction and done things differently,” he said during the interview. “But it is what it is now, and people’s reactions are what they are.”
Denver is using the rant to take a shot at Sherman and apparently didn’t accept his apology.
