The graphic came on screen ahead of co-host Ainsley Earhardt’s completely unrelated interview segment about the “lack of diverse viewpoints” on college campuses.

Later in the show, co-host Steve Doocy noted the error, explaining that it was caused by a mistake in the control room.

“We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. It was an accident,” Doocy said.

“We apologize, big mistake,” Earhardt added.

In a statement to ET Canada, a spokesperson for Fox News said, “This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team.”

Ginsburg recently underwent surgery to remove a cancer that was found on her left lung. The operation was reportedly successful.
