K-Fed to Fast-Food Workers, "Sorry About Super Bowl Ad"

In response to the protest regarding his Super Bowl ad, Kevin Federlinetold Associated Press Television he's sorry about that.

"Sorry", he says. said he's "really sorry" about the Super Bowl ad he did, which unfortunately upset many fast-food workers.

The 30-second ad Kevin did for Nationwide Insurance, shows him dreaming he is a rap star but then snaps out of it to face reality, he's working at a burger restaurant. That ad, according to National Restaurant Association President and Chief Executive Steven Anderson, amounts to a "strong and direct insult to the 12.8 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry."

In a recent interview with Associated Press Television, Kevin explained, "The commercial is completely intended for me, making fun of myself and my own situation. It has nothing to do with anybody in the fast-food industry at all. So, you know, if we've offended anybody, I'm really sorry about that."

Now that Kevin has issued an apologize, will the ad still be aired? Only time will tell.
