Tom Sandoval Is ‘Incredibly Sorry’ For Comparing Scandoval To O.J. Simpson & George Floyd

Tom Sandoval is apologizing for comparing the attention he received during Scandoval to O.J. Simpson and George Floyd in his recent New York Times Magazine interview. In the profile that was published on Tuesday, the “Vanderpump Rules” star discussed life after being dubbed the “most hated man in America” for hiding his affair with Rachel Leviss from his girlfriend of nine years, Ariana Madix. During the interview he was asked why he thought Scandoval became such a big deal. He responded, “I’m not a pop culture historian really, but I witnessed the O.J. Simpson thing and George Floyd and all these big things, which is really weird to compare this to that, I think, but do you think in a weird way it’s a little bit of the same?” The piece quickly made headlines and Tom has since apologized for the comparison in a statement obtained by Access Hollywood. “My intentions behind the comments I made in New York Times Magazine were to explain the level of national media attention my affair received. The comparison was inappropriate and ignorant. I’m incredibly sorry and embarrassed,” Tom wrote.
