ABC’s Spencer Apologizes for Cinco de Mayo Segment
ABC’s Lara Spencer is apologizing for referring to Cinco de Mayo as ‘‘Cinco de Drinko’’ on a ‘‘Good Morning America’’ segment this week.
The anchor wore, then twirled, a sombrero and mentioned that the holiday was the biggest day of the year for margarita sales. She held what appeared to be a margarita. She tweeted a day later that she got a little carried away and was sorry for the segment. MSNBC’s ‘‘Way Too Early’’ show similarly apologized this week for showing a staff member shaking maracas and taking a swig from what was said to be a tequila bottle. The holiday marks an 1862 battle victory by Mexican troops.
