They can't help but offer a bad apology. This was foremost an ethnic slur, and had nothing to do with Asians.

JAP can be an ethnic slur for Japanese.

It was a bad apology but not because of Asians, as Euclid pointed out. It's bad because it deflects all accountability. Who was responsible? What will their consequence be?

JAP isn’t the same as Jap. JAP is an acronym and the caption had nothing to do with Asians.

"and we changed our online procedures to ensure such an event never happens again"

Their apology is that next time they will catch it before it goes to print.  ::)

There's no question that the caption was not intended to go to print as-is. This is evident from how it includes an expletive. That doesn't change what it says about the person who wrote it.
Probably an internal joke caption that was inadvertently published. Many “woke” people are full of it behind closed doors.

Apology updated from:
"I apologize deeply to women, the Lakewood Jewish community, the Asian American community and all our readers"
to
"I apologize deeply to women, the Lakewood Jewish community (where the photo was taken), all members of the Jewish faith, the Asian American community and all our readers."

And still not taking any action.

You know there are issues when you need to apologize for your apology.

Cancel Culture would be to cancel anyone who read an article he wrote.

It’s possible that in future stories that paint lkwd in a negative way, they won’t be believed as much.
