Four-year-old Abigael Evans went viral as Bronco Bama Girl this week. Her mother captured her on video bursting into tears at one too many National Public Radio stories on the election: "I'm tired of Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney," she sobbed over the endless news coverage of the 2012 presidential election. NPR issued her an apology.
FORT COLLINS, Colo.
Bronco Bama girl was issued a formal apology from NPR after she burst into tears – exhausted tears – over yet another report on the 2012 presidential elections.
"Viewer Elizabeth Evans said she and her daughter, Abigael, were listening to NPR on a trip to the grocery store when [Abigael] started tearing up," reported Denver's 9News, in Colorado.
In response, NPR issued an apology on their breaking news blog on Wednesday. "On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling ourselves: 'Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days'."
