UFC president Dana White, who produced the Spike TV pilot that was shot in Boston in December, is apologizing for using an anti-gay slur during a YouTube rant against writer Loretta Hunt. White, who lived in South Boston for several years and briefly attended UMass, tells ESPN's Page 2: “Look, I lived in Southie. I say a lot of things, a lot of which people won't (expletive) like. OK, but you know, when I was living there -- and this was when I was a young [expletive] idiot, like 21 years old. I lived next door to a lesbian couple and they used to get terrorized -- terrorized. South Boston back in the day was a crazy [expletive] place to be." White produced "Madso's War," the pilot inspired by Boston's Irish mob starring Kevin Chapman and Matthew Marsden. It was partially shot at the Winery in Dorchester. No word yet on whether Spike TV will pick up "Madso's War."
