Terry Bradshaw has apologized to actor Ken Jeong and the “Asian-American community” after he made a racially insensitive remark during Fox’s upfronts presentation in New York on Monday.

The former NFL star, who appeared on “The Masked Singer” as a contestant, was referring to two of the show’s judges who cut him from the show.

“Unfortunately, I was kicked off by Alan Thicke and the little short guy from Japan,” Mr. Bradshaw said at the Beacon Theatre event.

The “Fox NFL Sunday” star was actually referring to Robin Thicke, the late Alan Thicke’s son, and Mr. Jeong, who is of South Korean descent.

“I made an insensitive remark today about Ken, who I’ve known for some time,” Mr. Bradshaw said in a statement late Monday, Variety reported. “I’ve spoken to him about the importance of cultural respect and apologized for my offensive comments. I would like to also apologize to the Asian-American community for my insensitivity.”



Mr. Jeong, who was at the upfront presentation to promote “The Masked Singer,” made no mention of Mr. Bradshaw’s comments, Variety reported.
