FOX Sports has published an apology after a fan posted a meme on Twitter with the words “I am Mormon” in it.
The meme appeared on Sunday’s edition of Fox Sports 2.
The comment was a reference to an anti-LGBT sentiment found in the LDS Church’s “God, Country and People” guide, which has been used to promote anti-discrimination laws in Utah and the state.
“The person in question has been made aware of the offensive tweet and will be asked to remove it,” the statement read.
“We apologize for any offence that may have been caused by this tweet.
In fact, we’re pretty sure it was a mistake.”
