Jill Biden’s office apologized for her remarks after major backlash.
Why didn’t Jill Biden make a public statement herself?
“The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community.” Michael LaRosa said Tuesday morning.
“Latino” community? Did he mean “Latinx”?

People weren’t amused with the apology.
Why did she attend an event that used the “LatinX” racial slur?
