MSNBC will apologize for an allegedly racist segment depicting a sombrero-wearing, tequila-guzzling Mexican on the morning of Cinco de Mayo, after the president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists demanded the network make amends.

The offending clip aired Monday morning at 7 a.m., just as MSNBC host Thomas Robert’s “Way Too Early” was wrapping up.

“And, it is Cinco de Mayo!” Roberts said, smiling as a sombrero-clad Louis Burgdorf slid in front of the camera drinking tequila. “The fifth of May, celebrating Mexican heritage and pride. And it commemorates the Mexican army over the French forces in the Battle of Puebla back in 1862.”

“It’s also an excuse to drink tequila on a Monday morning at work for Louis,” Roberts laughed, pointing to Burgdorf while he shook a maraca. “You have to drink the whole thing and eat the worm.”
