NBC's cafeteria was the center of a controversy on Friday due to its black history month menu.
The controversy started when Questlove, the drummer of The Roots which plays on The Jimmy Fallon Show took a photo of the menu, twitted it and seemed offended by the items on the sign.
Immediately, many of his followers on Twitter started criticizing the menu. They wrong...Somebody get Al Sharpton on the phone wrote one of them.
The cafeteria offered fried chicken and collard Greens, white rice/Black Eyed Peas and Jalapeno Cornbread.
But the cafeteria's chef, Leslie Calhoun, who is black, said she was disappointed that anyone would take the special menu as an offense.
I don't understand at all, Calhoun told TheGrio. It's not trying to offend anybody and it's not trying to suggest that that's all that African-Americans eat. It's just a good meal. I thought it would go over well.
Calhoun said she selected the menu items and create the sign.
Later on, NBC posted the following tweet. The sign in the NBCU cafeteria has been removed. We apologize for anyone who was offended by it.
