WGCL Morning Anchor Michelle Burdo opened her mouth and inserted her foot.
During a segment about summer hair tips (how exciting) Monday morning, Burdo standing with a black woman said, “I’m not a colored woman but I have kinky hair just like her and when you straighten it every day, it’s…” She pauses. The woman filled the empty air by saying, “healthier.”
On this morning's show, Burdo said she was sorry.
“Yesterday, I made a pretty insensitive remark during one of our segments here on Better Mornings Atlanta. I apologize… Once again, I truly want to say from the bottom of my heart that I really am sorry about that comment. I made that comment in reference to my hair color but I used an inappropriate term.”
Sorry, I don't buy that the reference was to her "hair color." She would have admitted to the insensitive remark and not tried to make an excuse for it.
If you ask us, she needs to apologize for the apology.
Here's the clip and you can judge for yourself what she was saying.
