More than a week after saying Americans aren’t pure because they marry other ‘species and ethics,’ Fox News host Brian Kilmeade decided to apologize Monday.

“I made comments that were offense to many people,” confessed Kilmeade. “Looking back at those comments I realize they were inappropriate. For that, I sincerely apologize.”

“America, a huge melting pot and that is what makes us such a great country,” Kilmeade concluded.
