ABC Show Host Apologizes For Hispanic Slurs
She referred to "Cinco De Mayo" as .... steady now ... "Cinco De Drinko". OMG!!
She wore a sombrero, said it was the biggest day of the year for margarita sales and has since apologized for the incident. An host on MSNBC's "Way Too Early" show appeared to take a drink from a tequila bottle while holding maracas. That host apologized as well.
I think we've PC'd ourselves around in a complete circle now. As far as I know, no one has even complained about these instances. Yet, already they are racing to apologize. Slow news day I guess?
I really don't find anything wrong in either case. Light hearted entertainment aimed at a 'supposed' holiday that does tend to be celebrated in bars more than anywhere else. As for the Maragarita sales remark, hell it probably IS the biggest day for that particular drink. Unless you're here in El Chuco. Then, every Friday is the biggest day of the year for those things!
On St. Patricks Day, everyone breaks out the Irish Whiskey, Guinness and bad Irish accents. Kentucky Derby Day brings Mint Juleps by the gallon and ugly hats while "Drinko De Mayo" ... yeah, I said it. Drinko! ... gets the Margaritas flowing.
Shouldn't these peeps be telling us what our elected officials are up to instead of trying to draw attention to jokes they told that got ignored?
Can they at least wait for a controversy to erupt before they start trying to "be big" and apologize for it? For that matter, is there really anything here to apologize for in the first place?
What do you guys think?
