Ani DiFranco apologizes - again

When singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco canceled plans to hold a retreat on a Louisiana planation, critics said her explanation seemed unapologetic.

It's tough to say that now.

Taking to Facebook Thursday, DiFranco chose to stop trying to put the matter into any kind of historical context, and instead simply begged for forgiveness.

Here is her post: 

everyone,
it has taken me a few days but i have been thinking and feeling very intensely and i would like to say i am sincerely sorry. it is obvious to me now that you were right; all those who said we can't in good conscience go to that place and support it or look past for one moment what it deeply represents. i needed a wake up call and you gave it to me.
it was a great oversight on my part to not request a change of venue immediately from the promoter. you tried to tell me about that oversight and i wasn't available to you. i'm sorry for that too.
know that i am digging deeper.
-ani

DiFranco has not responded to request for additional comment.
