sergio+garcia+tiger+woodsSergio Garcia is battling to save his reputation.

The Spanish golfer offered to serve Tiger Woods fried chicken for dinner. Ummm, racist much??

He is now at risk of losing endorsements worth seven million dollars!

Sergio said:

“I was caught off guard by the question. But don’t get me wrong. I understand that my answer was totally stupid and out of place. I can’t say sorry enough about that.Most importantly, I want to apologize to Tiger, and anybody that I could have offended. I feel sick about it. I’m truly, truly sorry. I called Mark Steinberg, his manager. He didn’t pick up but I left him a message and told him that I was very sorry and that I would love to talk to them as soon as possible and make sure everything is OK. It was a bad comment and shouldn’t have been said. I will apologize to him face to face.”

Tiger issued his own condemnation saying:

“The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate. I’m confident that there is real regret that the remark was made.”

Sergio Garcia está haciendo todo lo posible por salvar su reputación.

El golfista español ofreció servirle pollo frito a Tiger Woods…un comentario muy racista.

Ahora está a punto de perder patrocinadores y siete millones de dólares.

Sergio dijo:

“Me disculpo por cualquier ofensa que puede haber causado mi comentario durante la cena de entrega de premios de la Gira Europea. Respondí a una pregunta que me hicieron con una broma y fue un simple comentario tonto, pero de ninguna manera fue de un modo racista.”

Tiger comentó lo siguiente:

“No fue un comentario tonto. Fue equivocado, hiriente y claramente inapropiado.”
