Mario Batali, Who Was Accused Of Sexual Misconduct By Four Women On Monday

Celebrity chef Mario Batali, who was accused of sexual misconduct by four women on Monday, served up an apology for his actions with a side of cinnamon rolls.

Batali began his email newsletterwith an apology for his “past behavior.”

“As many of you know, this week there has been some news coverage about some of my past behavior. I have made many mistakes and I am so very sorry that I have disappointed my friends, my family, my fans and my team. My behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility,” he wrote. “Sharing the joys of Italian food, tradition and hospitality with all of you, each week, is an honor and privilege.

 Without the support of all of you—my fans—I would never have a forum in which to expound on this. I will work every day to regain your respect and trust.”

After the apology, however, Batali added a postscript that many are calling tone deaf.
