Kevin Hart—Straight boss move or quit too soon?

So your message, your book, or your article has a glaring mistake: spelling, grammar, punctuation or the frequent misuse of homophones (words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different definitions). Did I say homophone? Of course, I did, but you could have read homophobic, am I right?

Admit it; it’s in the news all over the wires that actor Kevin Hart steps down as Oscar host. And every story says the same; his homophobic tweets required an apology.

Does your content with mistakes, require an apology? Do you say you’re sorry to your readership for putting a period after the quotation? Well, let’s look at this for a second.

To me, the “straight boss move” is to make the corrections, repost and if it offended anyone, (few will let you know!) make the apology at the moment.

I believe that’s what Mr. Hart did all along. However, someone on the Oscar committee wasn’t satisfied.

Was Hart wrong to step down or should he have bitten the bullet and made another apology so he could fulfill his lifelong dream of hosting the Oscars?  What’s your take on this?  What’s your life-long dream that needs an apology?

And by the way, if you’re in a position of authority and people look up to you for your wisdom, have a second pair of eyes look over the words. Hey! I’m a proofreader folks! Just ask! Here’s why else.
