Just hours after an editor from Latino Rebels uploaded the following picture to our Facebook site, which shows New York Giants boricua star Victor Cruz in front of two Cuban flags promoting the June 10 Puerto Rican Day Parade in the "viva New York" section of the New York Daily News, a spokesperson for the newspaper issued the following apology to us via email:
"As the presenting media sponsor, the Daily News apologizes to the Puerto Rican, Cuban and other Latino communities as well as parade sponsors who were offended by our honest mistake. It will be rectified in tomorrow's paper."
Around 5pm EST today, an hour after the newspaper spoke to us, the Daily News' Twitter page tweeted the following:
The Daily News apologizes to the Puerto Rican, Cuban & other communities offended by today's error. It will be rectified in Friday's paper.
