Bob Whitfield Apologizes For Joking About Abusing Sheree

March 17, 2017  |  

We were horrified to hear the way Bob Whitfield joked about choking and putting his hands on his ex wife and mother of his children Sheree Whitfield. While he did show some remorse once he saw the tears she shed at his cruel humor, he felt the need to do a little bit more.
Recently, he sent an apology for not only the abuse but his reaction to her retelling it to StraightFromTheA

My Dearest Woman,

I am wrong. I made trivial the abuse of HER in front of the world. I am no monster. I allowed truth, comedy and conjecture to convey an image of myself that I would never condone. I know how emotionally charged anger can inflict damage to someone you hold dear. My mockery is shameful and no longer funny.

One instance of psychological abuse may not condemn someone to death, yet it would be no instances that makes a man wholesome; by being thoughtful in words and actions; being responsible in procedure and measures; being a protector, provider and provisioner for his family; and to show proper restraint with committing actions that lack virtue.

I laugh because it feels better than crying. However, I must cry for forgiveness.

My humility now is true to the pride that I take of holding HER to the highest esteem as mother or as wife, as confidant or as friend .

This ode is true…

Humble and Highest Regards,


As far as these type of apologies go, this one is not that bad. I don’t know if Bob blatantly accepted responsibility for abusing Sheree back in the day but that might have been in between the lines somewhere in that second paragraph, which I can’t decipher all the way. Either way, it’s a step.

What do you make of Bob’s apology?
