"Actor Robert De Niro has apologized for a quip he made at a Democratic fundraiser that the US might not be ready for 'a white first lady.' The Raging Bull star was introducing the First Lady, Michelle Obama, at an event in New York. '"My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone -- especially the first lady,' he said." (03/22/12)
