Bob Beckel Apologizes for Rape Remark

by at . Comments

Bob Beckel is very sorry. For being a total jackass.

During a round table discussion about gun violence on Tuesday night, specifically citing the proposal in Colorado to ban concealed weapons, this Fox News contributor questioned the prevalence of rape across U.S. universities.

He also seemed to brush off the idea of date rape.

"When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?" he asked, much to the shock of his colleagues.

Last night, realizing the major error of his ways, Beckel issued the following apology on air:

"It's a horrible, horrendous issue. And it's simply put, rape is rape. Whether it's date rape or it's somebody coming in off the campus trying to rape somebody else. I very strongly feel that way.

"And so, I just want to straighten the record out on that. I simply was trying to make... there was not a distinction to make here. It simply was that date rape is rape. And that is, by any other definition, rape is rape."

What do you think, readers? Is this enough? Or should Beckel be reprimanded by the network? Even fired?
