PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) - Disney ABC Television has issued an apology after clip of one of its shows making fun of a Nevada town spread across the Internet.

The Pahrump Valley Times reports (https://bit.ly/24FCBCp ) that Disney spokeswoman Patii McTeague says the comments about Pahrump have been removed from the Disney XD show “A Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything” and that the comments were unintentionally disrespectful.

The show made a series of disparaging remarks about the town, calling it a “stinkhole,” calling residents filthy and referencing a fictional disease called the “Pahrump lump. A Pahrump teen posted a clip of the dialogue on Facebook, where it received more than 39,000 views.
