Mark-Paul Gosselar Apologizes for Native American Episode of Saved By the Bell

While doing promo for Pitch (which has a new episode tonight) with EW, Mark Paul Gosselar had to apologize for something from his past. He chose an old episode of Saved By the Bell.

“[...] The one part of the episode — well, there’s probably more parts — that I think specifically deserves an ‘I’m Sorry About That’: He gives a – I’m doing this in air quotes – ‘presentation’ that consists of putting war paint on Screech and giving him a toy tomahawk — and he has Screech stagger around and grunt at people. Zack doesn’t get in trouble for this completely racist presentation, and the only punishment is he’ll have to skip the big track meet if he doesn’t take the project seriously. His teacher introduces him to Chief Henry, who appears to live in someone’s garage and bestows wisdom onto Zack before he drops dead without explanation at the end of the episode. [...] Zack gets into full Native American costume with face paint and a headdress.That’s another ‘I’m Sorry’ moment. … Actually there’s a picture of me online I found as well. So, uh, yeah… good stuff. I hope the kids don’t catch that episode.”
