Sheryl Sandberg has churned out a lackluster apology for that weird psychological study Facebook secretly conducted on its users, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Totally ignorant rich old white guy Tom Perkins delivered a cringe-inducing non-apology last night for his letter to the Wall Street Journal that compared the war on America’s rich to the Nazis’ persecution of Jews.

Mr. Wagner did take a moment to defend the company before making the big announcement:

In an entry posted to his blog yesterday, Mr. Daisey apologized to everyone who ever paid him a modicum of attention, including his audience, theater coworkers, journalists and human rights advocates, for exaggerating the negative details of Apple’s Chinese factory conditions on “This American Life.”
