RFK Jr. apologizes to family for Super Bowl ad

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr. apologized for a Super Bowl ad that aired Sunday from the super PAC backing his presidential campaign after it sparked backlash from his own family members. The $7 million ad seen by tens of millions of viewers drew direct parallels between the independent candidate and his uncle, former President John F. Kennedy. … Kennedy posted an apology to X late Sunday night, saying that he was ‘sorry if the Super Bowl advertisement caused anyone in my family pain.’ ‘The ad was created and aired by the American Values Super PAC without any involvement or approval from my campaign,’ he said in the post. ‘FEC rules prohibit Super PACs from consulting with me or my staff.’ … Kennedy has leaned on his famous family name and celebrity connections throughout his campaign, but several of his relatives have denounced his candidacy and called his campaign ‘perilous for our country.'” (02/12/24)
