Who That Girl

It's perhaps unsportsmanlike to pick on the grammar of a pregnant convict who's being interviewed by Diane Sawyer, but we're not feeling very Girl Scoutish at the moment:

I have a responsibility and it's something that I did wrong, and if I could personally apologize to every single person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving, I would," Nicole Richie said.

It should be every single person WHO has lost a loved one. Generally, that is a pronoun best reserved for things and unnamed animals. There are some cases where people can be "that," but we don't care for it.
