When reporting on Nelson Mandela's death Thursday, something was very off with a Detroit news station's tribute to the former South African president and anti-apartheid activist.
"Remembering Nelson Mandela," read the graphic during NBC affiliate WDIV-TV's broadcast. Next to it, however, was a photo of Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees.
At the end of the clip, the graphic switches to a photograph of Mandela.
Before the broadcast, anchor Devin Scillian shared his own thoughts on Twitter about Mandela's passing -- and a reminder that forgiveness is sometimes in order:
We've learned Nelson Mandela has passed away. Much of what I know about the power of forgiveness I learned from the life story of Mandela.
