It seemed an innocent remark in the middle of a Cinco de Mayo segment on “Good Morning America.”
Today, Lara Spencer said on Monday, is “Cinco de Drinko.”
But after a week of controversy over how the Mexican celebration was portrayed in the media – with some wearing sombreros and pretending to chug tequila – Spencer’s comment wasn’t taken lightly by Latinos.
On Wednesday, Spencer apologized for the segment.
During Monday’s broadcast, the long-time anchor wore, then twirled, a sombrero and mentioned that the holiday was the biggest day of the year for margarita sales. She also held what appeared to be a margarita.
