Cherry, who was fired by Sportsnet on Monday, said MacLean "buried" him with his response.

"Very disappointing," Cherry told Global News on Tuesday. "We're still friends, but I was very disappointed in the way he handled it. I don't want to go and condemn him or anything like that, but I was very disappointed."

MacLean initially apologized on Twitter for Cherry's remarks and followed that by issuing a second apology during Sunday's broadcast, calling the comments "hurtful," "discriminatory," and "flat-out wrong." MacLean admitted he "sat there, did not catch it, (and) did not respond."

Cherry's comments came just days before Canada's recognition of Remembrance Day.

"You people that come here, you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that," he said.

Cherry, who refused to accept any wrongdoing Monday after being dismissed by the network, said he intended to apologize on the next edition of "Coach's Corner."
