NBC is pulling an ad it aired over the weekend from its networks following a backlash.
The 30-second ad, approved by President Donald Trump, aired during the "Sunday Night Football" game between the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers.
"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible," an NBC spokesman told Business Insider.
