Ricky Martin

By now you've probably heard about Ricky Martin's visit to the middle east, and being photographed in a scarf with "Jerusalem is ours" in Arabic on it.

He gave something of an apology.

Martin says in a statement: "I had no idea that the kaffiyeh scarf presented to me contained language referring to Jerusalem, and I apologise to anyone who might think I was endorsing its message.

"My role is entirely humanitarian, and I will continue to promote the elimination of stereotyping anyone - be they from Latin America, the Middle East, or anywhere across the globe."

Um, yeah. So, it's just a stereotype that Arabs want to destroy Israel as an independent nation?

I think maybe he meant eliminating the stereotype of a dumbass flyweight celebrity exposing his own idiocy.

However, I must say he's not doing a very good job of it.
