Terry Bradshaw apologized Monday following an “insensitive” comment made about Ken Jeong during the Fox upfronts hours earlier.
During the presentation in New York, the “Fox NFL Sunday” star, who appeared on “The Masked Singer” as a contestant along with panelist Jeong, 49, said he was cut from the competition by “Alan Thicke and the little short guy from Japan.” Bradshaw, 70, was referring to fellow judge Robin Thicke, the son of late actor Alan Thicke, and Jeong, who was born in Detroit to South Korean immigrants.
“I made an insensitive remark today about Ken, who I’ve known for some time,” the Steelers legend said in a statement, according to Variety. “I’ve spoken to him about the importance of cultural respect and apologized for my offensive comments. I would like to also apologize to the Asian-American community for my insensitivity.”
Jeong, who was also at the upfronts to promote “The Masked Singer,” did not bring up Bradshaw’s comments while on stage, the outlet also reported.
Reps for Bradshaw and Jeong did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.
