What the hell is going wrong at NBC?
#4.) NBC has apologized for celebrating Black History Month with a Fried Chicken dinner. (!!!) Yes, this actually happened. It became public thanks to a Twitter post by ROOTS drummer QUESTLOVE.
(--The Roots are the house band for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon".)
--He tweeted a picture of a cafeteria menu that reads, quote, "NBC: In honor of Black History Month: Fried chicken, collard greens with smoked turkey, white rice, black eyed peas, jalapeno cornbread, [and] soda or water." (--Here's the picture . . .)
--An NBC suit said the sign has been removed, and apologized to anyone who was offended. (--
