A slang used by idiots who do not realize the term is scapegoat

Somehow, this slang is becoming popular and I'm hearing it more and more. Please, stop the ignorance.

First used by the ignorant for the word "scapegoat" but it is now commonplace to use it tounge-in-cheek, just as the word "Internets" is used referencing Dubya's plural addition to the singular item.

Just because someone uses Escape Goat doesn't mean they believe it to be correct. Most of the time they are messing around.
"The dude is being used as an escape goat."

"That's scapegoat."

"Yeah, I know, but this is the Internets so stfu."

The lame, and probably fake excuse that someone comes up with to get the hell out of a relationship (or a relationshit).
Jack didn't know how to end his relationship with Carol, so he used the fact that they went to different schools as an Escape Goat

Matt - "Dude, you're finally single again?"
Richard - "Hell yea bro, I told Megan that I'm too busy at work and I couldn't handle the relationship."
Matt - "Nice Escape Goat!"

"Escape goat" was said on-air in 2002 by UK Big Brother reality show contestent Jade Goody. Scorned by millions, usage picked up, and now it's widely said, by some knowingly aware of the joke, but others unknowingly. The mistake vaguely makes sense because people looking for a "scapegoat" are trying to "escape" blame.
"They were trying to use me as an escape goat," said Jade.
