Howie Mandel Apologizes for Bulimia Comment
I am NOT perfect. I make mistakes. I sincerely apologize to everyone who was offended.
— Howie Mandel (@howiemandel) August 26, 2015
According to the story on CBS News, Mandel apologized for his comment later in the live show. He apologized for making a comment on live television without first thinking about hurting anyone with his off-the-cuff remark. He said that he understands that bulimia is a mental illness and a serious eating disorder. Mandel said that he was in no way trying to make light of a serious condition. After apologizing on air during “America’s Got Talent”, Mandel also sent out a Tweet apologizing again. The Tweet he sent out read, “I am NOT perfect. I make mistakes. I sincerely apologize to everyone who was offended.”
