The fact that someone is actually having to make an apology for something like this is beyond disappointing.
In a newly released song, LSU star-turned-rapper Flau’jae Johnson compared her riding in a Porsche 911 to the terrorist attacks on September 11.

Take a bow @LSUwbkb. A player on your team mocked those who died on 9/11 by comparing it to a Porsche.
Disgusting. I know people who still struggle to sleep at night because of what they did in war after… pic.twitter.com/AFmw2zK6mf
This video has since been deleted.
It's impossibly confusing how Johnson could sing this song and not think to herself, “Maybe I shouldn’t include this lyric.”
Many have rightfully been disgusted with Johnson’s song. For the record, this isn’t a case of Americans being too easily offended by the littlest of things. Johnson crossed a line that should not have been crossed. Even though it happened almost 22 years ago, there are thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on that day and still feel the pain.
To give her some credit, Johnson did issue an apology for her irresponsible lyrics.

However, this apology came one day after Johnson "liked" two tweets from people who suggested that she did nothing wrong. So is she really sorry, or is she just saving face?
