New York Post managing editor Frank Zini: “We recognized early on that an image intended to amuse and play off the Yankee nickname ‘Bronx Bombers’ might be considered offensive by some people, even though that was not our intention. Therefore, it was removed after a very small number of papers had been printed.”

Asian American Journalists Association: “We appreciate your candor in explaining that the image and accompanying headline were meant to ‘amuse and play off the Yankee nickname ‘Bronx Bombers.’ We take you at your word that it was not the paper’s intent to offend. However, when something that egregious is published, we believe it warrants a more direct apology.”
