Colorado city councilmember faces backlash over ads mocking minorities

Councilmember Steve Sundberg of Aurora, Colorado, has issued an apology following backlash over a series of videos of himself imitating minority groups. Sundberg, who took office in 2021, created Facebook advertisements for his sports bar business Legends of Aurora Sports Grill in 2020 by doing stereotypical impressions of Arab Muslims, South Asians and Mexicans, among others. In one of the videos, Sundberg can be seen sitting on a carpet wearing a robe and a turban.
