The Baltimore Ravens running back, Ray Rice finally gave a public apology for the disturbing video of him that went viral. It showed Rice, dragging his unconscious then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, out of an Atlantic City hotel elevator in February.

He stated:

“That’s not me. My actions that night were totally inexcusable. I have to live with that the rest of my life. Last time I did not publicly apologize to my wife. … Her pain is my pain. One thing I wanted to do today was apologize to my wife. One day she [his 2-year-old daughter] is going to know the power of Google. And we’re going to have to explain that to her, explain what happened that day. I let my wife down, I let my daughter down, I let my wife’s family down … I let so many people down. It was a one-time incident. I am a man to say that I needed help. I am not afraid to ask for help. When the time is right … me and my wife, we want to go out there and help people — anybody, violence of any kind. We will go out there and help as many people as we can and speak out against domestic violence. I am here to say that I made the biggest mistake of my life. She can do no wrong; she’s an angel. I know a lot of people lost respect. That’s my fault.”

Do you think Rice’s apology is sincere or is he doing major damage control for his career?
