Meac­ul­paofthe­week BY THE BELL MARK-PAUL APOL­O­GIZES FOR SAVED EPISODE — 26 YEARS LATER

In Touch (USA) - - Omg -

Is it too late now to say sorry? Not for Mark-paul Gos­se­laar, who played Zack on Saved by the Bell from 1989 to ’92. The 42-year-old is apol­o­giz­ing for a 1990 episode that showed Zack dis­cov­er­ing he had Na­tive Amer­i­can an­ces­try. “He gives a ‘pre­sen­ta­tion’ that con­sists of putting war paint on Screech and giv­ing him a toy tom­a­hawk [and] doesn’t get in trou­ble for this com­pletely racist pre­sen­ta­tion,” the Pitch star re­cently re­called. Later, Zack dons “face paint and a head­dress” (pic­tured) to il­lus­trate he takes his an­ces­try se­ri­ously. Groans the ac­tor: “That’s an­other ‘I’m sorry’ mo­ment!”
