Tennis great Serena Williams is in hot water over incendiary comments she made in Rolling Stone about the victim in the Steubenville, Oh., rape saga.
Williams came under fire this week after saying that "[the Steubenville rape victim] shouldn’t have put herself in that position" at a high school party.
Now Serena is issuing an apology, though she also appears to be deflecting responsibility and implying that she may not have ever made that remark.
"I am currently reaching out to the girl’s family to let her know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article," Williams says.
"What was written - what I supposedly said - is insensitive and hurtful, and I by no means would say or insinuate that she was at all to blame."
So ... what she supposedly said was hurtful. What did she say?

Mama bears are known for being vicious protectors of their children. Father and founder of Boing Boing Mark Fauenfelder just found himself a new nickname: Papa Bear.
Frauenfelder took to Twitter and his Boing Boing blog after receiving texts from his daughter about the TSA agent's "glaring" at her and then barking "COVER YOURSELF."
Frauenfelder's 15-year old daughter was traveling with a group of friends on a college tour when a TSA agent decided to play morality police and shame the teen for her attire, seen in the picture above.
The incident, which left the teen "humiliated and shamed," prompted former Babes in Toyland bassist Maureen Herman to write an entry on A is For about the sexism and shaming the girl encountered at the hands of someone who went beyond the boundaries of his job.
There's no doubt TSA agents see crazy things all day long, but maybe they should learn to restrict their comments to, oh, I don't know, issues of safety and security and not leggings as pants.
We get that they lost their invasive full-body scanners and maybe they're a little bummed about that, but leering at teen girls and shaming them for traveling in comfort? That's a little outside their pay grade and job description. Best leave the parenting to, you know, the parents.
Otherwise, be prepared to suffer the backlash.
What do you think, THGers? Was the TSA agent out of line?
