NBC APOLOGIZES FOR “MONKEY MESS UP” AFTER GABBY DOUGLAS WIN

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

In a not so quick attempt for damage control the NBC network finally made an public apology for airing the monkey commercial that was a promo for NBC’s new show “Animal Practice”

The commercial aired after NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas delivered a great segue about Gabby Douglas saying “There are some African American girls out there who tonight are saying to themselves: ‘Hey, I’d like to try that too.’ More from London in a moment.”

In response the NBC network  commented”Gabby Douglas’ gold medal performance  was an historic and inspiring achievement. This spot promoting ‘Animal Practice,’ which has run three times previously, is one in a series with an Olympic theme which have been scheduled for maximum exposure. Certainly no offense was intended.”
