That was the final straw. Dr. Drew took to video to apologize and explain why he got it so wrong.



Now I really wanted to praise him for coming clean, manning up, and admitting he was wrong. But then I saw what he was doing on Twitter. He’s making vague threats to people who post the video of his prior comments:

Oh boy. That’s sad. And it doesn’t look good for Dr. Drew, even if he were right about the copyright laws.

Don’t be a part of the madness. But do wash your hands.
