What's everyone tweeting about Tiger?

Shortly after his public apology Friday, the majority of posts on Twitter regarding Tiger Woods seemed to be less-than-empathetic, to say the least.

However, Twitter’s more notable users - including Eve and Mandy Moore - had a different take on the former golf pro’s plea.

“Whatup ya'll... Don't ya'll think they should leave Tiger Woods alone. He's human, what the hell,” Eve wrote. “He didn't handle the media right but whateva. The only appology he ows is 2 his wifey…”

Mandy Moore posted “very honorable words from tiger woods. good for him...”

Jill Marie Jones encouraged followers to forgive Woods for his mistakes.

“Bout to watch Tigers speech! Lets NOT put that man on THE CROSS! We all make mistakes & if his wife can FORGIVE him, them WHY cant we?” she wrote.

Another Tweet came from Reagan Gomez, who posted, “Why does Tiger have 2 apologize 2 US? He didn't cheat on us. He didn't lie to us. He's famous and rich from Golf, not from marriage advice.”

But Perez Hilton is one famous Twitter user who didn’t care much for Woods’ apology.

“In case you didn't know already... Tiger Woods is a [expletive] moron!”

Hilton followed up with “Thanks for the laughs, Tiger!” before moving on to yet another controversial public figure: “What’s next for Howard Stern?”

    The Tiger Woods saga has taken a turn for the worst. The women that Tiger had sex with are now demanding an appology, come on get real.
    Each of them has come out in public exposeing themselves to negative publicity. They each knew that Tiger was married. I think they should shut up and appologize to Tiger's wife. He does not owe them an appology, He owes an appology to his family 1st and then his fans. Those homebreaker,s who were only after fame and money, are as guilty as he is. Tiger's wife is the victom, not these porn stars and harlots. If a woman has sex with a man she knows is married, is as guilty as the man himself.

    Why are Americans so interested in people's personal lives? If celebritties or politicians turn out to have affairs, sleep around, are gay, whatever, why is this anyone's business but their own. If his wife is OK with his behavior, and it appears she is as she stays with him (the half a billion $ could help I suppose) then who really cares. If his sponsors aren't happy, pull the contract, if you don't like it, turn off the TV when he plays. To have a media circus around this man, for him to apologise publically for his personal bahavior, it's the world gone mad!

    Seriuolsy who really cares. He didn't cheat on me. The apology was clearly staged to the very last details. Hopefully the apolgy (apologies)to his wife was more sincere. Surly the world has alot more to be cncerened about then Tiger Woods. We truly are a sad people.

    Tiger owes only his wife and family an apology, no one else, ecspecially these mistresses. I mean come on, they knew the guy was married. When are they gonna apologize to his wife and family? Afterall, it takes 2 to tango. If they had kept quiet no one would have ever known. Tiger sure wasn't gonna say anything.

    When I complained golf was boring, this wasn't exactly the remedy I hoped for... And he owes an apology to more than his wife. He also has children who now have to grow up with a daddy issue. Furthermore, he acts like AIDS or VDs don't even exist. There is such a thing as being sexually responsible, even if you cannot aspire to the whole morality thing.
    Amazing that you can give a person fame, prosperity, talent, and a lovely family and they can manage to muck it up.

    I thought Tiger did a good speech and I think it was sincere. When I see people coming on tv picking at Tigers speech – it looks to me like a bunch of vultures. Stop the crusade against Tiger – let him try and get his life back plus make a go of his marriage to Elin. I figure if they cannot get their marriage back that you, the new media have caused this to happen.
    The porn stars with their profession – don't you think they should have known what parents teach their kids – USE PROTECTION IF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE SEX. Do you think Edward and Sanborn only played around one time? I doubt that very much – climb on their lives and make them miserable. Tiger made alot of mistakes but give him
    another chance – stop ruining his life more.
    I am 77 yrs old – give alittle consideration and stop exploiting Tiger & Elin Woods!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As a media professional I saw Tiger's "apology" speech to be overly staged, but definitely based on tried-and-truth public relations strategies. In crisis management, you must thoroughly assess the damage to public perceptions then craft a well thought out, detailed and pointed media response which addresses specific needs. I.E...The comments about Tiger's wife and her reactions were clearly designed to lessen the blow in any eventual divorce settlement. Given the enormity of the negative global outcry after all the women in Tiger's life started speaking out, his PR handlers knew they needed an extraordinary, but controlled multi-phased image rehabilitation roll out plan. Friday's effort was part one of that carefully designed production. Stay tuned for much more. I predict in five years, with Tiger's good behavior, this ugly episode will have little public sting.

    I was also hoping he would announce his retirement. I would never follow him in golf, nor let my children watch him again...Leave him alone? No. Like it or not, the man is a role model to many kids...my golfer son being one of them. My son is now so disgusted with him, he would never follow him in golf again..even if he were to win the Masters this year....what a shame! Once a cheater...always a cheater!

    He must return to the PGA circuit because as Zack Mayo
    said when asked for his DOR, " I've got no were else to go".
    Will the fans embrace him and buy his endorsed products?
    Only time will tell.
    He has a family to support and other large fixed expenses.
    The only way to pay these bills is with golf and endorsement
    earnings. Retiring now and putting his name on a car dealership
    will not get the job done.

    I think we're in for some pretty good golf. Imagine what Tiger might have been able to acomplish if he had been fully rested and not preoccupied during some of his less than stellar games. My bet is he'll get his game back pretty quick – watch out. My hope is he sticks it to the sponsors who deserted him. They're the $$suckers we should be criticizing.

    If he is really sincere...he should retire and do public and humanitarian services! If he is really sincere for a change! Looks like to me he feels the pressure now of losing his Money and integrity. That's the reason why he made such a script of apology (probably from a professional scriptwriter). What a showman! Typical!

    He is only sincere and sad because he got caught. If his wife is smart she would kick him to the curb. What would he do if his wife was acting in that fashion? He thought he was above everyone else, so God needed to bring him down a peg or two. We need to stop putting people like Tiger Woods and other sports stars on pedestals. They don't belong there. We need to stop feeding their ego with fame and money that is not justified. We help create these monsters. Elin, kick him to the curb where he belongs.

    If every man who cheated on his wife had to go on national t.v. and get sex therapy, there would be a very long waiting list for them to do so. The only difference is that this famous man got caught. Hopefully, his wife will give him another chance and their kids will grow up with their father in the house. He obviously loves them.

    I think that he probably started imitating many of the other players, and now the heat is on all of them. Whether he is sincere or not doesn't matter. The real picture will be in his actions from here. I don't think that he will be doing anything like this again. We have more important things in our country that we should be focusing on....like health care, jobs, and helping the poor.

    Why is this news? Why do people think that the ability to hit a golf ball and make a lot of money from doing it make them some kind of role model? Does being athletic somehow make someone morally superior? I just don' get it. Play your sport, make your movies or play your songs. I don't really care what you do in your private life if it doesn't affect the performance I might pay my money to see. The only thing we can learn from this is that the more rich and famous someone gets, the more deranged their private lives become. It should be obvious to everyone by now. Nobody in the world should care about this except for the people he directly hurt like his family.

    I get really fed up with this mania of famous people having to apologize for wrong doings. All I want is to see actors acting well, sportsmen playing well. I have nothing to do with their private lives. For example, Tiger Wood has to speak to his wife in the privacy of their home. I don't care about what he did. I just want him to continue to be the great golf player he is. And he doesn't stop being a great player because he cheating on his wife, for Pete's sake.

    He will not cheat again. He can change. Weren't Christ's apostol's the worst of the worst. Have faith. He has seen that he could lose everything, he will change. Family is the most important we have, he can't want to lose it. He is a scared as we all would be if we did something we knew was wrong and wish we could take it back. Let's get back to basics. It's none of our business anyway. He came to show us the greatest golfer who ever lived, nothing else. If we judge him, then let's all get ready to apologize to our co-workers for our transgressions. You know what? It's none-ya.

He had a bad marriage lack of loving intimacy with Elin.Elin also had mother=in=law problems (jealousy on Mommas part ) Will they have a marriage in 2 years ?? NO. will he pack on alot of weight ? yes and he will never play golf like he did before.He is just not a likable sort and has No charm to him i only see coldness and arrogance and now anger.only way he can get respect now is to give loads of his money to charities and do volunteer work with children and play nice to the media.He will never be calling the shots again .Game over as they say ??

    I just don't get what the big thing about this person is about. This is his life he is messing up. Not yours or mine.

    If the concern is about his influence upon others ( ie; young people), then do "your" job and teach your children right from wrong yourself. Ya, remember, you are the parents, not some unknown anybody in some spot light. Hello people, ultamitlly, who is the teacher here? Who holds the greatest responsibility of teaching right from wrong??????

    One real big thing to teach here, by the way, is that a persons life, and the choices they make in it, is "their" choice to make, not others. It may be wrong for them, but it is still their choice. Perhaps that is the lesson here.

    Quit dumping your responsibility on others.

She was clearly devastated by this entire ordeal. The other women do not deserve an apology. They knew he was married and had children. They were hoping that he would leave his wife. What he did was not right, but like his mother said he did not kill anyone and what he did was not illegal. I am looking forward to when I can watch golf again when Tiger returns.

    I think people need to start to realize that just because the media keeps on updating us on the everyday and the every move of those who are famous, it does NOT give us the right to judge or what is worse, to THINK we have any right to demand anything from these people. We live our privacy, and what happens to us, stays with us, and those who are close to us, this is the way we like it to be. It does not concern the other 6 billion people on the planet, so the bottom line is...If you dont like people minding your own business, why would you go and mind someone elses business? it is NOT our business. Tiger decided that he wanted to apologize to people? Great..but it was an apology that was not necessary. Children look up to him, yes...and so they do to their parents...yet, some parents keep on doing the things they do, wether they are good or bad. Other parents, realize their mistakes,and they change, apologize, just like woods must have done in private, but he went beyond, and apologized to the entire world. do you know why he did it? Because of people who think they have the right to demand such behavior. WE CAN HAVE AN OPINION, BUT WE CANNOT DEMAND PEOPLE TO LIVE AND BEHAVE THE WAY WE WANT THEM TO ACT..WE HAVE OUR OWN LIVES TO CONTROL, LET OTHERS TAKE CONTROL ON THEIR OWN LIVES.

    As the wife of a man that has cheated on me, I have mixed feelings on the matter. My husband did not have to make ammends to anyone other than me. It took a lot of communication to make it work and I feel we have better ways dealing with things that made him feel like he had to cheat on me in the first place. It's almost never one sided on why men (or women) cheat. Tiger has to ,unfortunately, do more given his status in the sport of golfing. He may always be a great golfer but anytime you are given a gift of such talent that it allows you to make money off of that gift, he most certainly deserves to apologize to more than his wife. When we, the consumers, buy items off of companies that sponsor Woods, which he endorses, who then in turn pay him money, We then, also become his stakeholders. Buying something you don't need is always an emotional response and I personally lost respect for him and would avoid buying anything he endorses until I'm confident that he as turned over a new leaf. If he doesn't change he should get a divorce. I've been a child of parents who divorced when I was older and I knew for years they did not love each other and it was not pleasant and does not give those children the abiltiy to learn the way a healthy marriage should look. But one thing I feel strongly on is that the ""other women" do not deserve any type of apology. Granted, There are women who sleep with marriend men that have know idea they are married, but these women knew exactly who he was and knew about his family. No matter how much he pursued them, they should have held onto their diginity and said no! Sorry if I'm kind of rambling or have to many grammatical errors. It's been a long day :-)

    Tiger Woods doesn't owe us anything. He's a human being who will continue to make mistakes like anyone else. he only owes his family. If you have your children looking up to this man, you need to explain to them that he will fall short just like hey will and just like you. Tiger Woods personal problems are personal. He's not shooting or killing anyone. The majority only approved of him because of his Golfing skills, not his personal life. Another thing, be a roll model to your own children.

    It's time to leave the story alone. He said he was sorry. Let his family deal with it. My problem is with that atty. Gloria Alridge. Since when do Hos Hookers and Homewreckers deserve an apology. It takes two and they all knew what they were doing and they got paid alot, either by money or things. The only one who deserves an apology is Elin Woods, and she should get it from all these women.

    To Tiger and family,
    I forgive you.
    I have been waiting to hear you apologize to ease my pain.
    In the words of the famous Dr. Martin Luther king Jr.
    The time is always right to do what is right
    Today tiger, I felt in my heart you did the right thing; you admitted to your mistakes and asked for forgiveness – to me that’s when the healing process begins.
    Again, in the words of the famous Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
    Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase
    Tiger, you did that today with your interview and what a step you took.
    You were right NOT to take questions. Never, Never, Never, sit down and give an interview or address questions regarding the past and open yourself up for lawsuits from those women. It’s time for you and your family to move on with your life. I am praying you will return to golf this year a stronger and wiser individual.
    Elin, I know its hurtful and embarrassing that Tiger took you and your beautiful family for granted. Don’t be foolish or blindsided by jumping up and divorcing Tiger – that’s what those women are after by revealing their alleged flings with your husband. Pray with him, love him, and most of all make a space in your heart to forgive him – that’s when your healing process begins.
    Again, in the words of the famous Dr. Martin Luther king Jr.
    We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

    Listening to Tiger,s statement was sad and hard because he owes his family and friends "The I,m sorry". not us(the public) . The news people that refused to go in and listen to him because they could,nt question him- well they missed the whole point! ' Ithink! Do you the news makers think that we really want to know the how often, how long,how many places it happen? Not me! You made women famous for their kiss and tell-really. They knew he was married and managed to be interviewed in daytime/night time media and to be photographed for magazines and news articles. What a way to become famous and what a way to reward their bad behavior . that,s what we all had a hand in by watching and listening . As for our children, it is us that should be the role model and to teach them to appreciate the good in all and to take responsibility for their actions as he has. Mr. Woods is a golfer not your moral compass for when we want to point fingers . To the new man who talked about Tiger,s 1 billion dollars as if it came out of his own pocket! Well sir Mr. Woods worked really hard for it no one just gave it to him . Some things are JUST PRIVATE!

    ALL I will say in this matter......"all of you that will cast the first stone .......go right ahead..........." If you love Tiger Woods ..."The Golfer" then continue your support and love Tiger woods "The Golfer" His private affairs off the golf course are none of our concern.....As far as I am concerned he doesn't owe anyone an apology except his family.......Everyone needs to get a life or go on with their own!

    It wasn't necessary for Tiger to make a public apology. So what that he had affairs! Most men do, he just got caught and the fact that he's a celebrity helps to keep the news in the media. This is a personal issue and the only apology he needs to make is to his wife and children. News must be really slow these days to keep talking about Tiger and the women he had affairs with. There are more important things in the world to be concerned about. Leave the man alone and let him get on with his life as should eveyone else!

    I agree with Joel T. The saddest part of the whole media situation is that CNN acknowledges somone like Perez Hilton. A self respecting journalist would not even know who that is. Sad Sad Sad. Nothing involving Perez should ever be considered news. CNN.com might as well be People.com or USweekly.

    I watched Tiger's speech and I think he was SINCERE. We should all focus on our own lives and leave him to deal with his problems. He is human and we all have problems. LEAVE THE MAN ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Honestly people. Lets give the man a break. I feel that he was very sincere in his apology today. He admitted to his fans and friends how sorry he was for disappointing them. We are all human and do dumb things. I think that we need to remember that just because he has money that this does not make him less human. For the sake of golf lets move on please. Tiger and his family will address the improper behavior and the consequences of that behavior in due time. Lets concentrate on our own lives and not his.

    When he starts playing golf again, he'll keep on doing exactly what he's been doing before. Once a cheater, always a cheater.

    I watch the Tiger Woods conference and several thing caught my attention. The body language of his mother and the other two ladies seating on the front row. The vibes they were giving off were not positive at all. Last, the quest that he invited I notice that as far as I could see there was no African-American in the audience.

    SAD!!! That is the only way to explain how we put an individual up on a pdeistal for hitting a little white ball around a golf course. With so many other issues surrounding us as a nation; troops on the ground facing a ruthless enemy, the economy, education and a less than stellar Congress who couldn't even "pass gas" correctly. Maybe it's about time we start to focus on some of the "real" people who work hard all day and just enjoy sitting down to watch a sporting event just for the fun of it. Why is it that when the rich make poor decsions, it's the poor that pay the greatest price. Tiger Who1

    Its time that people and the media let Tiger Woods get on with his life. He apologized to the people he needed to apoligize to and that should be the end of all this media blitz.
    He did not have to apologize to all the mistresses, they knew what they were getting themselves into before they started the relationship.. I am glad that he has gone back to rehab and get the needed help he needs. Now everything is up to Tiger and his family.
    I thought he did a great job this morning.
    Good Luck Tiger

    Children look up to him. He owed apologies to more than his wife.
