Lara Spencer apologizes for Prince George ballet comment

Lara Spencer Is 'Horrified' After Mocking Prince George's Ballet Class, Says Dancer Travis Wall

[VIDEO] Lara Spencer's 'Good Morning America' Apology, Prince George

"In response to Lara Spencer's harmful mocking of young boys (in this case, Prince George) who enjoy taking ballet classes, a group of professional male dancers led a class for boys and girls outside the Good Morning America studio this morning - a lovely sight to wake up to", Jarret Wieselman, Netflix social media manager, tweeted.

"I screwed up. I did". "My honest apologies to get an insensitive comment I left in soda news yesterday".

'I've spoken with several members of the dance community over the past few days.

To nail home her point, Spencer invited three influential members of the male dance community to weigh in on the faux pas.

"Lara I hope you now understand the problems that so many young men have faced as a thoughtless community laughs at them for wanting to dance", Nigel Lythgoe, creator of So You Assume You Can Dance, wrote on Twitter after her feedback.

"I can't tell you how much that hurts", said Fairchild, star of "An American in Paris" on Broadway and a former principal dancer at New York City Ballet.

The "GMA" host issued an apology after a segment on Thursday saw her and her co-hosts breaking down the school curriculum of Prince William and Kate Middleton's child. "Again, I'm really sorry", she concluded.

In line with Spencer's tone when she mentioned ballet, and in keeping with smiling pictures of George that were being shown on screen, she, the other anchors and the audience cracked up laughing. "Prince William said, 'George absolutely loves ballet.' I have news for you, William".

Disappointed posts and reactions still popped up even after Spencer's first apology on Instagram, with actresses Shoshana Bean and Julie Halston saying it wasn't enough. "Flying through the air to live orchestra playing some of the finest music ever written has to be one of the most glorious experiences life has to offer", Benjamin Millepied, the French dancer and choreographer who is married to actress Natalie Portman, wrote on Instagram.

"Good Morning America" host Lara Spencer apologized on Monday morning for a "stupid and insensitive" comment she made about Prince George taking ballet last week. Just think about the young boys who may have seen this and could quit their passion at her expense. Go climb your mountain-and love each moment of it. "She's aware of it and she wants to talk to all of us and she wants to set this thing straight and right".
