When a person makes it sound like they are apologizing when, in fact, they are just shifting the blame or using twisted logic to argue their way out of responsibility for their actions.

When you falsely apologize to someone to make you look like the bigger person, even though you don't mean a word of it.

Often used by pro athletes, movie stars, and politicians when they get caught cheating, making absurd comments, or get arrested for drugs.
