Mazda to Phelps: You Apologize to China Right Now!

And You'd Better Act Like You Mean It, Buster!

"To my Chinese friends, as many of you know, I recently engaged in behavior which was regrettable and not what people have come to expect from me." So sayeth Michael Phelps in an apology spot directed at the good people of China on behalf of Mazda. We wrote earlier this week that Mazda was sticking by their million-dollar, record-breaking spokesman, but it looks like they wanted to make a point. According to the New York Post, "in a subtitled video distributed by auto giant Mazda to Chinese media, the Olympic hero begs forgiveness from fans who cheered his eight gold medals last summer in Beijing."
