2. Your burning anger emoji may be slightly off

The gentleman who was accidentally outed, Ryan Bridge, apparently wasn't that angry about the incident, just embarrassed. Towards the end of the article, he is quoted as saying,

ďMark (Richardson) didnít do this on purpose. It wasnít like he was being mean or he was trying to get me to say something I didnít want to say. That was an innocent, honest mistake.Ē

Co-host Richardson then apologized.

ďIn three years of doing this job, this is as bad as Iíve ever felt. I say a lot of stuff on this show, and I mean it, and some of it walks the line. I just want to say Iím sorry.

ďItís because obviously, I love you so much as a person. Just me being a smartass and trying to poke fun at you for a comedic moment on the show has led to this, and Iím dreadfully sorry.Ē

Bridge concludes by saying his co-host has nothing to apologize over: ďThese things happen. Itís live television.Ē


It was sloppy but it doesn't appear to have been malicious. The two broadcasters seem to be close friends.

In this case, the context is relevant.
