Keke Palmer is well aware that anyone even moderately online can’t say “sorry” anymore without adding “to this man.” The excerpt from Vanity Fair’s lie detector test video with Palmer — in which she is ruefully unable to identify a photo of Dick Cheney — has been meme’d and shared and the actress has talked about it with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live as Twitter turns into the anthem for the back half of 2019. And Palmer knows its an anthem we the people need, so she’s just released official merch for it, because what else would a hustler do? You can now buy a “Sorry To This Man” t-shirt off of Palmer’s site, and yes it does come with a still frame of her face right after she banished the specter of Cheney like a ghost she robbed of its power by refusing to believe in it.
