So, 14-time Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps was photographed smoking out of a Bong.


But what's worse is Phelps' statement, when he admitted smoking marijuana:

I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.

Geez, Michael, the only "regrettable" behaviour was your apology. Now you're a hypocrite, too -- because I don't believe for a minute that you'll never smoke pot again.

The CORRECT response is, "Yes, I was smoking it, and it's nobody's business but my own." Period.

Sure, you'd probably lose some endorsements, but I guarantee you'd gain lots of others -- and a lot of respect.

I hope, with age and maturity, you will come to see your apology was the only "youthful and inappropriate" thing you did.
