A condescending and insincere apology offered before telling someone that he/she is wrong, usually instead of explaining why the person disagrees with the other party. Often accompanied by derisive laughter and/or mansplaining .

As a bonus, this makes people angry, allowing the Sorry But guy to claim that he can't listen anymore until they calm down.

Bobby: Sorry, but I'm going to keep doing it anyway.

Another limp dick passive aggressive move done by some who are trying way too hard to seem cool, smart, sarcastic and/or funny. Key term, trying way too hard..... Usually the attempt is an utter and complete failure and perceived for what it truly is, yet another desperate stab at attention.
I saw some dope put up one of those sorry not sorry posts about some hot button issue on Facebook. I guess the "desperately needs some kind of attention" app wasn't working at the time.

sorry not sorry needy shut up passive aggressive dumb unfunny

Person 2: No, Sorry.

Person 1: *comprehends person 2 never sold drugs to begin with*

Person 1: So you are also saying that you never sold drugs to begin with? Correct?

Person 2: Yes, that's what I meant by No Sorry. Plus I can't help even if I really wanted to.
