Earlier today, I participated in the #NN19 #FixTheDamnHealthcare panel with @lpackard, @ElenaHung202, @mattbc, @DrSriram and @glparodi. For the most part, I thought it went well...between us we managed to cram a ton of complicated policy stuff into an hour. 1/
All of the feedback I received from those who were there in person, as well as those who watched the livestream & who commented via Twitter and Facebook, was very positive. 2/
When @mattbc was introducing his segment on #MedicareForAmerica, he mentioned the hashtag #DoctorsAreDickheads, which I had never heard before. @DrSriram jokingly quipped "why is everyone looking at me?", and I kiddingly said "not all doctors?" to him. This was out of line. 3/
I did quickly realize that it was inappropriate...but I didn't realize HOW inappropriate it was (especially given the topic) until awhile later, because I'm a thoughtless jackass at times. I apologize to Matt specifically and to the disability community in general. 4/
This is not a "non-apology apology." I said something thoughtless, offensive and hurtful in a venue where my entire goal was to be helpful. In short, I fucked up royally, I feel badly, I let you down and I promise to do better in the future. /end
