When the show returned from commercial break, hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt quickly apologized for the mistake.
“We need to apologize … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it,” co-host Steve Doocy said later in the show. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.”
“We apologize, big mistake,” added Earhardt.
Health issues plagued Ginsberg the past few months.
She fell and broke her ribs late last year.
Doctors found cancerous tumors on her lungs when they were treating her for those broken ribs.
She missed two weeks worth of oral arguments but doctors say she is cancer free and recovering normally.
