Abstract This study aimed to study the effect of gender on the use of public apology strategies. Public apology utterances uttered by eight American male (AMFS) and eight American female film stars (AFFS) were collected from two American news websites, CNN and Fox News. To identify the public apology strategies, Olshtain and Blum-kulka (1984)’s model was used. The apology strategies comprise illocutionary force indicating devices (expression of regret, offer of apology, request of forgiveness), taking on responsibility (explicit self-blame, expression of embarrassment, lack of intent), an explanation or account of the cause, offer of repair, promise of forbearance, and apology intensification. It was found that AMFSs performed all six apology strategies while only four apology strategies consisting of illocutionary force indication device (expression of regret and offer of apology), taking on responsibility (explicit self-blame, expression of embarrassment, lack of intent), explanation, and apology intensification were employed by AFFSs. Regarding the similarities in the use of apology strategies, the findings indicate that both AMFSs and AFFSs made use of the taking on responsibility strategy. In terms of differences, AMFSs performed more apology strategies than AFFSs. Even though taking on responsibility strategy was performed the most by both AMFSs and AFFSs, the remaining apology strategies were emphasized differently.From this study, L2 learners of English can learn how L1 speakers apologize in public. Suggestions for further research are included.
