See the ‘Abominable’ MSNBC Segment That Forced the Network to Apologize

MSNBC issued an apology on Tuesday after it aired a segment celebrating Cinco de Mayo that was full of stereotypes and bad comedy.

The clip features “Morning Joe” producer Louis Burgdorf dancing around in a sombrero, shaking a pear of maracas and drinking what is supposed to be a bottle of tequila. The segment aired on MSNBC’s “Way Too Early.”

“On Monday, Cinco De Mayo, ‘Way Too Early’ made sarcastic references to the way some Americans celebrate the holiday. It was not our intention to be disrespectful and we sincerely apologize for the ill-advised references,” MSNBC said in a statement.

Hugo Balta, the president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, called the segment “abominable.” The network was also relentlessly mocked on social media over the stunt.

The Washington Free Beacon has the MSNBC video:
