Dorell Wright’s Apology for Nude Pictures

by March 30, 2010

I love that the Miami Herald refers to the young lady who exposed Wright on the web — literally — as a “groupie”: “Heat forward Dorell Wright apologized Monday after a naked picture of him surfaced recently on various websites and Twitter accounts. The picture, featuring frontal nudity, was taken during a private video chat session a last year ago. According to the site, a groupie posted the picture after Wright’s girlfriend — who is the mother of his child — commented about how great Wright is. ‘I’d like to apologize to my family, friends and the Heat organization for this embarrassment,’ Wright said in a statement. ‘The photos were taken roughly one year ago in what I thought was a private conversation. I lacked judgment and was naïve about the Internet. I realize this is not an excuse but it is something I truly regret. I realize this affects my entire family and I’m embarrassed by it.”’
