CNN Apologizes To Zeta Phi Beta

CNN’s Erin Burnett recently issued an apology to members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. after she mistook them for gang members on-air.

According to Barnett the entire thing was a misunderstanding and she’s sorry if it seemed like she was calling the Divine 9 organization gang bangers.

A brief note on a segment from earlier this week: We talked with Baltimore Reverend Jamal Bryant about a community town hall he was hosting on Tuesday. He stressed the importance of gang members attending. Immediately after that interview, we showed a live picture of the town hall. I noted the reverend said gang members were attending, along with other members of the community, members of the sorority Zeta Phi Beta were shown in that live picture. We’re sorry if anyone got the impression we were calling that sorority gang members; that wasn’t our intention. Zeta Phi Beta, by the way, is a 95-year old organization which right now is distributing supplies to seniors in Baltimore, cleaning up the city, and getting ready to host a meeting on youth and law enforcement.

Hmmmmmmmm…what do YOU think about her apology???? Sincere or nah????
