When is an apology not an apology? (Eldertoons)

A cartoon I tweeted yesterday:

I also tweeted this from Wikipedia about the different types of fake apologies out there (“fauxpologies”) that Ilhan Omar’s apology fit the definitions of:
  • Tactical apology—when a person accused of wrongdoing offers an apology that is rhetorical and strategic—and not necessarily heartfelt
  • Explanation apology—when a person accused of wrongdoing offers an apology that is merely a gesture that is meant to counter an accusation of wrongdoing. In fact, it may be used to defend the actions of the accused
  • Formalistic apology—when a person accused of wrongdoing offers an apology after being admonished to do so by an authority figure—who may also be the individual who suffered the wrongdoing

All of them can be seen in her “apology,” as well as an additional one I would call the “Deflection Apology”:

Deflection apology – when a person accused off wrongdoing offers an apology but tried to change the subject by saying that others do the same or are worse.
