David Letterman sat down with Oprah Winfrey Sunday night and discussed everything from Paris Hilton to Sarah Palin. In the interview, Winfrey asked Letterman about the apology he made to Palin for a joke about her then 14-year-old daughter Willow. Lettermen said he apologized because he wanted to â€œcontinue to make fun ofâ€ the elder Palin and if he didnâ€™t â€œsincerely expressâ€ his regret, he would â€œnot be able to go forward making fun of her.â€
Letterman made a â€œsex jokeâ€ about Palinâ€™s daughter after she was photographed attending a baseball game with her mother. Letterman said that he thought it was Palinâ€™s older daughter, Bristol, at the game, who made headlines for becoming pregnant at 17. After he realized his mistake, Letterman said he â€œtrulyâ€ felt bad for the 14-year-old and thought to himself, â€œNice going, you got the wrong daughter.â€ It was a â€œstupid joke that fell into dumb luck and got worse,â€ he added.
Winfrey asked if it bothers Letterman when he has hurt someoneâ€™s feelings with a joke. He responded that it does and said he has called people to apologize â€œmany times.â€
