Obama apologizes for Harris's appearance comment

| No Comments

Barack Obama publicly apologized Friday for making a comment on Kamala Harris's appearance, BBC News said.

The California Attorney General and Obama have been friends for a long time, but the president still acknowledged that his comment was inappropriate, the Huffington Post said.

Obama remarked that Harris is the "best-looking attorney general in the country." Critics claimed that Obama's comment speaks to the constant hurdles women face in the workplace regarding their looks, oftentimes belittling women to nothing more than their appearance.

Harris accepted Obama's apology.
