Good Morning America host Amy Robach has apologized for uttering the archaic and outdated term 'colored people' to describe black people.
Robach made the unfortunate remark during Monday’s edition of Good Morning America, while discussing singer/actress Zendaya.
“We all know Hollywood has received recent and quite a bit of criticism for casting white actors in what one might assume should be a role reserved for colored people," she said.
The backlash on social media was swift and brutal.
Robach apologized, saying her “mistake” was “not at all a reflection of how I feel or speak in my everyday life.”
Robach added that what she meant to say was "people of color".
It's an easy mistake to make, especially when you're up against a commercial break and the producers is shouting in your earpiece.
