The anchor of MSNBC’s “Way Too Early” apologized Tuesday for “ill-advised” references to Mexicans and Cinco de Mayo.
Thomas Roberts, who hosts the show from 5:30 a.m. to 6 a.m., told viewers via Twitter that a segment that featured a correspondent in a sombrero swilling tequila was not intended to demean Mexicans.
“On Monday, Cinco De Mayo, ‘Way Too Early’ made sarcastic references to the way some Americans celebrate the holiday,” he tweeted. “It was not our intention to be disrespectful and we sincerely apologize for the ill-advised references.”
