Ok, if you’ve visited this section, you know that I don’t talk about gossip or rumors.  Net/Spec is for news and analysis. 

That said, I HAD to post this.

NBC – currently on most people’s bad side – had a sign posted today in NBC’s 30 Rock commissary for the lunch menu.  The Roots member ?uestlove took a picture of the sign and put it on his Twitter feed:

Seriously?!  Who thought this sign was a good idea?  Do they have the ghost of Strom Thurmond working on their lunch menus?!

Since this had been posted on Twitter, NBC has since taken this down and issued this statement:

“The sign in the NBCU cafeteria has been removed. We apologize for anyone who was offended by it.”

Yeah, that’ll fix it…

    • Wow, good job NBC. Nothing like some good old fashioned racism to kick off black history month. Not that I think there should necessarily be a black history month, unless there’s a white history month, but, I digress….(See what I did there? I stole YOUR line, on your OWN site!)
