Christian Day’s “public” apology (which isn’t publicly visible as of this post, 9/9/2014) struck many as bland and inauthentic, coming not from a place of genuine remorse for his actions but motivated purely by the bad press he’s been receiving. Community support matters in niche markets and Christian was no doubt feeling the pressure from widespread disgust at his willingness to make callous threats and perpetuate rape culture. Even more telling is his request that folks keep these issues private, as so not to “hurt the Craft” — not to hurt his reputation and pocketbook, more like.
Most telling, however, are the screenshots of comments from Christian’s then-public personal FB page in the hours and days following his original missive against Amorella Moon/Amanda. Seems our friend Christian *isn’t* as sorry as he claims to be, given his doubling-down about offering no apologies, having no regrets, answering vitriol with vitriol (original conversation can be analyzed for supposed vitriol here: http://cowardlychristianday.tumblr.com/post/96580947717), and suggesting that people deserve to be on the receiving end of his actions because of “poke[ing] the beast.”
