Robert F. Kennedy Jr. apologized Monday morning for a $7 million Super Bowl ad that borrowed heavily from a 1960 campaign ad for his uncle, John F. Kennedy.
RFK Jr. shared the ad on X but hours later added an apology to his family. (Notably, the ad remained on his account.)
“I’m so sorry if the Super Bowl advertisement caused anyone in my family pain,” Kennedy wrote on X. “The ad was created and aired by the American Values Super PAC without any involvement or approval from my campaign. FEC rules prohibit Super PACs from consulting with me or my staff. I love you all. God bless you.”
