Time for a mea culpa! Good Morning America co-anchor Amy Robach made a big apology on Monday, after letting the term "colored people" slip during a live broadcast on the show.
The 43-year-old had been filling in for rumored rival Robin Roberts on a diversity segment, when she noted recent criticism for casting white actors "in what one might assume should be a role reserved for colored people."
Backlash occurred immediately online, with Twitter users calling her comment "offensive." One fan even threatened to stop watching the show altogether.
Robach managed to recover from the flub quickly, however, releasing a statement shortly after the show explaining that she had meant to say "people of color."
The GMA host called the whole thing a "mistake" and "not at all a reflection of how I feel or speak in my everyday life."
