Lara Spencer apologizes for mocking Prince George’s interest in ballet

NEW YORK — “Good Morning America” host Lara Spencer has apologized for her “insensitive” comments about Prince George taking ballet lessons.

Spencer discussed the backlash against her comments Monday, saying she has learned the “bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

“I screwed up,” Spencer said on air. “The comment I made about dance was stupid and insensitive and I am deeply sorry.”

She was heavily criticized last week when she heard Prince George loved ballet and she said “we’ll see how long that lasts.”

Spencer interviewed dancers Robbie Fairchild, Travis Wall and Fabrice Calmels on Monday. They all told their stories about the stigma they faced.

She said she hopes she has turned a negative “into a teachable moment.”
