NBC, Black History Month cafeteria menu
NBC apologized for and removed a sign in a network cafeteria listing a special Black History Month menu that included fried chicken, collard greens and jalapeno cornbread.
The sign, posted at network headquarters in New York, was photographed and tweeted by Questlove — the drummer for Jimmy Fallon's house band, the Roots, on Late Night — with an accompanying tweet saying, "Hmm HR?"

It looks like NBC wasn't pleased with the attention brought on by Questlove's Twitpic. The drummer later followed with, "I think I need a twitter break. I done started something. and now I must put out fire."
NBC officially declined to comment, but Kevin Goldman, NBC's vice president of communications, tweeted: "The sign in the NBCU cafeteria has been removed. We apologize for anyone who was offended by it."
