Ken Griffey Jr. issues apology after awkward interview

In case you missed it, Ken Griffey Jr. was the orchestrator of a pretty awkward interview with ESPN's Linda Cohn on Wednesday. "The Kid" appeared to be less than thrilled about having to go on camera and he definitely did nothing to hide his feelings either.

After the interview, viewers took to social media to bash Junior for his perceived lack of enthusiasm, including Cohn herself via Twitter.

Griffey soon realized his mistake and personally called up Cohn to apologize for how the interview went. He also posted the following apology on his Instagram page:

I want to apologize to Linda for the way things went today. I was in the middle of a cough attack and felt a little ill and didn't want to walk off the set. Linda has always been professional to me and my family . I'm sorry, Junior @espn @sportcenter @lindacohn
Hey, all is well that ends well, right?
