Prince Williamsays Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts,” Spencer said as she chuckled and paused for audience reaction. “I mean, he might!”

After celebrities including Wall,Rosie O’Donnelland more took to social media to slam Spencer for bullying the child, the ABC TV personality issued a public apology.

“My sincere apologies for an insensitive comment I made in pop news yesterday,” she penned alongside an Instagram photo of mountains. “From ballet to anything one wants to explore in life, I say GO FOR IT. I fully believe we should all be free to pursue our passions. Go climb your mountain-and love every minute of it.”

Wall spoke out about the comments in an Instagram video on Friday, August 23. “Lara, the next time you want to laugh at a child for taking a dance class or laugh at them at all, look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if you want to be a bully today,” he said into the camera.
