I want to say that, Mr. Phelps needn’t give Chinese netizens an apology. I really admire your courage to admit your own mistakes, you are much better than some sports stars and Edison, so you are still the hero in our eyes, never changing. Although you make the apology with some rigid, some netizens began to lash, but I believe the words are from the depth of your heart, not for others, only for yourself. We must draw lessons!
But one thing has puzzled me, why do you give the apology specifically to the Chinese netizens? Is great importance in the development of China or feel that Chinese people may be more kind-hearted? Am not going to mention your motivation, but I think it is not necessary to apologize to the Chinese netizens, we will still understand you and continue to support you if you don’t come out to apologize with your affirm you made before . But you come out an apology today, people feel a little strange.
Fault is your own business, you make mistakes, you come out to apologize to the Chinese netizens. Well, if I kill an ant, is it necessary for me to apologize to the American people? The total life has a lot of silly, don’t put myself public figures, or you will release some pressure, will be more comfortable to live, isn’t it?
I think Phelps is a very simple boy,and I believe that he was played upon, including the apology he made. Sincerely hope that Mr. Phelps can be a wise man, of course, the future, I hope you succeed.
