NBC Apologizes For Monkey Gymnastics Spot After Gabby Douglas’ Win

It was a comedy of errors, but NBC apologized for going to a commercial showing a monkey doing gymnastics right after Bob Costas said, “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.” The statement says:

“Gabby Douglas’ gold medal performance last night 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.”
