Glenn played the incredibly awkward audio on radio today of the NHL goalie who, while attending an event honoring Nelson Mandela, clearly had no idea who Nelson Mandela was. Why do people feel the need to make stuff up when they are put on the spot and don’t know the answer? It was an absolute train wreck.
WATCH (Warning: It's painful. So painful):
If you're too scared to watch, here's the question and answer:
Reporter: Obviously Nelson Mandela, one of the most significant historical figures of the twentieth century. What knowledge or awareness did you have of him growing up, or when did you learn of him?
Jonathan Bernier: Well obviously growing up, he's one of the most known athletes in the world. A lot of impact in any kind of sport that he did, and even playing hockey, everyone knows him, right? From being the type of person that he was off the ice and on the ice. It's unfortunate that he passed a year ago, but, he changed a lot while he was with us, and he's a tremendous guy.
Later, Jonathan did apologize for making the mistake, claiming he got flustered on the red carpet and he didn't mean to offend.
"I think everyone makes mistakes and that was me that night," he said.
"I think that's a great response," Glenn said.
