DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr has issued his first public apology for referring to the city as "dumb, lazy, happy and rich."

Orr addressed the issue for the first time since making the comments to a "Wall Street Journal" editorial writer.  The EM says he apologizes to anyone who was offended by his remarks.

According to Orr, he was making a figurative statement about complacency not a literal statement about the people of Detroit.
