Conservative talk show host, Rush Limbaugh apologized for reckless comments he made about Georgetown University Law School student Sandra Fluke, who testified in support of the Obama administration’s requirement that all employers must include co-pay-free birth control under their health insurance coverage for employees.

On his radio show, Limbaugh called Fluke a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ for telling Congress that her employee health plan should  cover the cost of birth control.

The apology came three days after the initial comments –after several advertisers of his popular radio show ceased their relationship with his show after outcry from the public.

So now I suppose all is well.   Celebrities and Public Figures always seem to say or do something knowing that they are going to have to apologize for it.   Does an apology let Limbaugh off the hook?  Time will tell if the advertisers make their way back to his program.
