If you weren’t offended or have no clue what they’re apologizing for, then never mind.
A week ago, CBS broadcast an episode of “The Amazing Race” that used an unwise prop: a B-52 that had been shot down over Vietnam in 1972. The image and its treatment offended veterans groups, not to mention a very vocal Greg Gutfeld and other Fox News hosts.
The network is sorry. This week’s show opened with an apology, offering proof that old school patriotism can be a powerful thing.
“Parts of last Sunday’s episode, filmed in Vietnam, were insensitive to a group that is very important to us – our nation’s veterans,” said host Phil Keoghan. “We want to apologize to veterans – particularly those who served in Vietnam – as well as to their families and any viewers who were offended by the broadcast. All of us here have the most profound respect for the men and women who fight for our country.”
