MSNBC Apologizes for Latest Racist Stunt Mocking Cinco de Mayo (Video)

Last week MSNBC aired a segment for Cinco de Mayo showing an anchor in a sombrero drinking tequila.

Could you even imagine if FOX News would have pulled this stunt?

Today MSNBC apologized for the stunt.

The network’s “Way Too Early” drew fire for the way it “celebrated” the Mexican holiday on Monday, as HuffPost described:

MSNBC tried its hand at cultural commentary on Monday with a Cinco de Mayo segment featuring a stereotypical portrayal of a stumbling Mexican by a reporter pretending to guzzle tequila straight from the bottle.

As a visual reading “Mexican Heritage Celebration” appeared on screen, Way Too Early host Thomas Roberts explained the historical background of the holiday. As he spoke, a sombrero-clad Louis Burgdorf wandered around the newsroom shaking a maraca.

For a network that associates with the left they sure have had to apologize a lot this year for their racist broadcasts.
