Apology from Shalit
Responding to this incident, Shalit has apologized. He said:
"In describing the behavior of Jack, I used words ('sexual predator') that I now discover have angered, agitated and hurt many people. I did not intend to use a word that many in the gay community consider incendiary...I certainly had no intention of casting aspersions on anyone in the gay community or on the community itself. I regret any emotional hurt that may have resulted from my review of Brokeback Mountain." [link]
Good for him.
