CNN —  

“Good Morning America” co-anchor Lara Spencer has apologized after she was accused of making a sexist and stereotypical comment about one of Prince George’s favorite pastimes.

The controversy arose on Friday after the ABC morning news show aired a segment that mentioned that the future king of England’s favorite activities include ballet lessons.

'Good Morning America' host Lara Spencer has apologized over a comment about Prince George.

“We’ll see how long that lasts,” Spencer deadpanned before chuckling.

Viewer response was swift, with even dance legend Debbie Allen offering a video rebuttal on social media that was posted with the hashtag #boysdancetoo.

Spencer later posted a mea culpa on her Instagram page.

“My sincere apologies for an insensitive comment I made in pop news yesterday,” she wrote in conjunction with a picture of an open field and outdoor skyline. “From ballet to anything one wants to explore in life, I say GO FOR IT. I fully believe we should all be free to pursue our passions. Go climb your mountain - and love every minute of it.”
