Dana White's vlog with expletive-laced tirade that included several slurs resulted in him making one apology to GLAAD:

"I chose some words that offended and hurt some people," White said. "Anybody who knows me knows I would never, ever maliciously attack somebody who wasn't attacking me. As far as the gay and lesbian community, my comments were not directed toward them. I'm actually a supporter of many of their issues. The last thing I would ever want anybody to think about me or think is cool is to go out and attack somebody because of their sexual orientation. That was not my intention. That was not the way I said it and I apologize to anybody that I've offended or hurt."

White told ESPN he did intend to attack the female blogger. As a result, he never apologized for calling her a bitch. It took a week but now The Association for Women in Sports Media (AWSM) is asking the UFC to "take action in regards to misogynistic comments":

"This is disheartening because this behavior is unacceptable," said the AWSM president Jenni Carlson. "It establishes a hostile work environment not only for Loretta (Hunt) but all women who cover the UFC. We cannot accept that any female sports journalist would have to work in an environment of intimidation or a hostile workplace."

Carlson is the woman who was blasted by Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy (pictured). If you recall, Gundy was not disciplined for trying to verbally intimidate Carlson nor was Michael Strahan when he did so to ESPN reporter Kelly Naqi.
