By now, you’ve all heard about Caitlin Davis, the Patriots cheerleader who got fired from her gig because of some pictures that turned up on the Internet. Well, the contents of the said images, anyway. Now, the face-saving Davis is making the rounds to the gossip sites, telling her side of the story and she’s trying to use the ignorance defense, saying:
At the time I had jumped in the picture with the kid, I didn’t realize what had been drawn on him, which I take responsibility for not being alert.
That’s fine and good and all, but if I couldn’t help notice she has a Sharpie in her hands in the lead image. It’s also pretty apparent the picture was taken right as she was either getting ready to make art or moments after she did. Either way, the Sharpie in her hand — and the look on her face — kind of blows that whole “I didn’t know” defense out of the water, especially if she already tagged sleeping drunk’s face.
Unless Caitlin is legally blind. That’s about the only way, just from looking at the picture, her story is plausible.
Since we are discussing insincerity, it should be noted people shouldn’t make apologies for things they aren’t sorry for. Saying things like “It’s unfortunate that this did happen to Caitlin” when your site is responsible for posting the pictures to begin with is awfully disingenuous.
