Touré Apologizes for Piers Morgan Rant, Blames ‘Masculine Bravado BS’

MSNBC contributor Touré went on Piers Morgan‘s CNN show Friday night discussing the Trayvon Martin case, and the discussion turned to  Touré saying Morgan isn’t qualified to comment on the case. “You are too new to this situation to fully understand what’s really going on here, and what’s really at stake here for America.”

“What a load of fatuous nonsense you speak,” Morgan shot back.

Jeter has been linked to Scarlett Johansson, Jordana Brewster, Mariah Carey, among others.

Recent speculation said Jeter and Kelly were headed for marriage, but that seems less likely now. Rest assured Jeter and Kelly’s faces will be on the covers of People, Us Weekly and numerous other tabloids this week (“What happened!?!?”), not to mention the back page of tomorrow’s New York tabloid newspapers.
