White's apology and lowering his public profile
Thursday, 02 April 2009 16:37
The fallout of Dana White's video blog yesterday has been huge and it appears will result in a scaling back of White as a public figure representing UFC.
White's apology to GLAAD largely regarding using a homophobic slur is already up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=360SEiiO7Uo
In addition, as things stand at this point, White's public profile is going to be greatly reduced
*White will be doing no more video blogs
*White has pulled out of doing a reality show based on his life that was scheduled to start filming
*He is going to cut back greatly on dealing with the media and greatly reduce his public role in the company
