MSNBC posted a tweet Friday mocking a police officer whose bodycam captured him getting dragged down a street by a suspicious driver he was questioning:
MSNBC's caption reads, “Does it count as a police chase if you drag the cop along for the ride?”
But shortly after The Gateway Pundit said it ran a Saturday story on MSNBC's tweet — and making sure to take a screengrab for posterity — the network deleted it and offered the following statement:
A video tweeted from @msnbc Friday evening has been removed. The material was inappropriate. It should not have been posted and we're sorry.— msnbc (@msnbc) May 16, 2015
The tweet reads, "A video tweeted from MSNBC Friday evening has been removed. The material was inappropriate. It should not have been posted and we're sorry."
The Gateway Pundit added that the MSNBC statement didn't note what it was apologizing for.
But here's a smattering of reactions to the "we're sorry" tweet:
TheBlaze reported the dragging incident Thursday.
