Garcia apologizes for ‘fried chicken’ remarkSergio Garcia apologized for saying he would “serve fried chicken” while making a joke about having Tiger Woods over for dinner.
The British newspaper The Guardian reported Garcia was asked in jest while on stage at the European Tour’s awards dinner Tuesday night if he would invite Woods to dinner during the U.S. Open.
The Guardian reported Garcia said: “We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”
The newspaper said Garcia released a statement through the European Tour: “I apologize for any offence that may have been caused by my comment on stage during The European Tour Players’ Awards dinner. I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner.”
