Video: Janoris Jenkins Apologizes for Saying 'Retard' After Giants Release

Free agent cornerback Janoris Jenkins issued an apology for using disparaging language against people with special needs when speaking with TMZ Sports on Friday.

Jenkins was interviewed by TMZ's Evan Rosenblum, the father of a special needs daughter, and called the situation a "learning experience."

"It's always a learning moment, man. Everybody's going to learn from different situations...move forward and learn," Jenkins said. "You just admit to it. Admit that you did wrong, which I did."

The Giants released Jenkins after he called a fan a "retard" in an exchange on Twitter and then was defiant when asked about the situation by reporters.
