Pro golfer Sergio Garcia made an incredibly racially offensive comment to fellow athlete Tiger Woods when he said he’d serve him “fried chicken” if he had him over for dinner. He later apologized in a statement — do YOU think that’s enough?

Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia are set to face off during the 2013 U.S. Open, but the Spanish pro golfer took the rivalry to a new extreme when he made a racially offensive comment towards Tiger at an awards dinner.

Sergio Garcia Says He’ll Serve Tiger Woods ‘Fried Chicken’

During the European Tour’s awards dinner on May 21, Sergio made a racist comment when someone asked him jokingly if he was going to have his rival Tiger over for dinner during the U.S. Open.

“We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken,” he said.

The racially-charged comment shocked attendees and the public after The Guardian published the remark, especially since Tiger’s dad is African American.

Sergio Garcia Apologizes For Fried Chicken Comment

After he made the statement, the Spanish golfer released a statement in which he apologized for the comments.

“I apologise for any offence that may have been caused by my comment on stage during The European Tour Players’ Awards dinner. I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner,” Sergio said in a statement.

Sergio has acknowledged in the past that he and Tiger don’t get along, according to Fox News.

Even though his comments were offensive, we’re glad Sergio apologized.

What do YOU think of Sergio’s comments, HollywoodLifers? Do you think his apology is sincere?

But both countries are struggling to bring back billions of dollars stashed in Swiss and other tax-haven countries. If 70% of India territory is considered unsafe due to Maoists, terrorism and trouble in North East etc, there is no dearth of people who branded Nigeria as the kidnapping Capital of Africa. The ransom industry is thriving with mafia lords known for economic frauds and drugs trafficking.

As for Slumdog, we were ready to believe that as India’s biggest star he was envious of another film getting the Oscar and therefore the comments he made, or reportedly made, on his Blog, were reflective of that envy.
