(Newser) – Michael Lohan is, er, publicly really sorry for publicly slamming La Lohan's girlfriend on a gossip website, New York magazine reports. Lohan calls himself "a Christian" and says he regrets everything he said about Samantha Ronson (especially that bit about calling her "dark, hideous, and a disgusting representation of humanity.") Lohan says he was just trying to "reach out" to his daughter.

"In the past, I felt that the best way to get to her was to speak out publicly,” he says. “And it was the wrong choice."
