lara spencer apologizes for laughing at prince george for taking ballet

  • good morning america co-anchor, lara spencer, has walked back comments she made during a good morning america segment about prince george's current school curriculum, which includes math, science, history, religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet.

  • spencer paused after saying "ballet" as colleagues including george stephanopoulos could be heard laughing in the background. spencer then quipped, "he looks so happy about the ballet class. prince william says 'george absolutely loves ballet.' i have news for you, prince william, we'll see how long that lasts."

  • following the segment, many people on social media were upset:

actor, dancer, choreographer, director, and producer, debbie allen:

actor, singer and six time tony award winner, audra mcdonald:

comedian, actor, author, entertainer, rosie o'donnell:

dancer, dance instructor, choreographer, and former contestant/current show choreographer for so you think you can dance, travis wall:

ru paul's drag race alum, alexis michelle:

lara spencer's (pr approved) apology:

my la jetees were on pointe----but i couldn't stand my instructor.
