When asked what he was doing for the Latino community, he said, 'I might have tacos when I go home; I'm not quite sure yet'

East Haven, Conn.'s mayor Joseph Maturo has been under fire recently for an offhand response to the question, "What are you doing for the Latino community today?" He answered, "I might have tacos when I go home."

The comment came as Maturo was being interviewed by WPIX-TV about an alleged anti-Latino bias in the community and the police department. Maturo has since apologized in a written statement, writing, "Unfortunately, I let the stress of the situation get the best of me and inflamed what is already a serious and unfortunate situation. I regret my insensitive comment and realize that it is my job to lead by example."

He told a radio host that it was a "dumb, off the cuff, stupid remark," on Wednesday morning. Watch the uncut video of the initial television interview below.

Malloy called Maturo’s comment “repugnant.”

“They represent either a horrible lack of judgment or worse, an underlying insensitivity to our Latino community that is unacceptable,” Malloy told the CTPost.com. “Being tired is no excuse. He owes an apology to the community, and more importantly, he needs to show what he’s going to do to repair the damage he’s done. And he needs to do it today.”

“It was stupid, it was insensitive,” Maturo said during a radio interview Wednesday. “I gave my detractors… a reason to make matters worse with a ‘gotcha’ and an insensitive and stupid answer to something I should have never said.”
