"Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family."
One would think that after Melissa Harris-Perry featured a panel mocking Mitt Romney for having a black grandson, as reported at Liberty Unyielding, the progressive network would have rethought their tweet.
Not so much.
"After realizing that their offensive generalization doesn't line up with reality, MSNBC quickly deleted and apologized for the tweet."
We are deleting the earlier offensive tweet. It does not reflect msnbc's position and we apologize.
