CNN's Erick Erickson Apologizes For "Vagina Monologues" Tweet

Blog ››› ››› TODD GREGORY

During the first night of the Democratic National Convention, CNN contributor Erick Erickson tweeted, "First night of the Vagina Monologues in Charlotte going as expected":

Following widespread criticism, he later apologized, saying that it wasn't his intention to offend people:

Among his numerous past inflammatory statements, Erickson launched a series of sexist attacks on feminists during the 2010 Super Bowl.

That year, a TV ad featuring quarterback Tim Tebow had been rumored to contain an anti-abortion rights message. When the ad aired and was not as pointed as expected, Erickson tweeted, "That's what the feminazis were enraged over? ... That's what being too ugly to get a date does to your brain" and "Ugly feminists return to their kitchens." He continued his attacks the next day.
