They didn't know she was going to win before the commercial segments were set, so explain to me how a matter of coincidence is racism?
Another poster not realizing what America saw was a tape delay, what you were watching was not live, EXCEPT from Bob Costas.. The actual event where gabby won gold, was already taken place hours prior before airing on t.v... Plenty of time to do edits, this "they didn't know Gabby had won" is not a valid excuse when the event was never live on primetime t.v.. London is damn near 6 hours ahead.

They've aired that same commercial before Gabby Douglas won gold. Its bad timing but certainly not blatantly racist. They have a similar commercial with an olympic penguin.

Tape delay or not, they obviously wanted to air this commercial after a Gymnastics finale because that's where it made the most sense. Yall acting like they saw Gabby won the gold, went out and made sure to record a monkey on rings, which isn't even a womens event, just to air after showing the tape delay. The only people making this racist are the ones screaming "RACISM!!!!". And to the activist in here that said because NBC apologized, therefore they're guilty, that ignorant comment in itself makes everything else you said ridiculous. Public companies like this one are forced into apologies when stupid stuff like this comes up. They got more exposure than they paid for for their show now that people are making a mountain out of a molehill.

The sensitivity in this thread is astounding.

I know it's time delayed you have a reading comprehension problem, they make media buys months in advance for big events like the Olympics and the schedule is made then. You think NBC makes a media schedule the night before a day of Olympics? The broadcasting is already paid for by ad revenue from media time slots bought.

But go ahead try to counter me, I work in marketing so I kind of know how this thing works.
