Think Progress caught the latest insensitive comment made by BP CEO Tony Hayward on Sunday regarding the Gulf oil spill. After apologizing for the disaster, Hayward manages to bring it back to himself:
I'm sorry. We're sorry for the massive disruption it's caused their lives. There's no one who wants this over more than I do. I'd like my life back.
Hayward's comments are baffling as he's not even trying to hide that fact that he's only looking out for Number One. The comment is just one in a string of out-of-touch statements made by Hayward, including when he called the spill "relatively tiny." The spill is now by far the worst oil spill in U.S. history.
