2010 SWC skit 'demeaning'
Los Angeles - America's largest Spanish-language television network has apologised for a skit featuring African stereotypes that aired on a show in the Los Angeles area.
In a statement on Saturday, Univision apologised to viewers and anyone who was offended, calling the material "unacceptable."
The skit on the programme Despierta America was a parody of the upcoming World Cup soccer tournament. It showed characters in Afro wigs clutching spears and dancing to faux jungle music.
Local civil rights activists Earl Ofari Hutchison and Eddie Jones called the skit demeaning.
The Univision statement said disciplinary action was taken but it did not elaborate.
