On Sunday, Mitt Romney finally commented on the segment during Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC show where panelists joked about a photo of his family and their adopted African-American infant grandson.

The former Republican presidential nominee was interviewed on Fox News Sunday a day after Harris-Perry offered an extended televised apology for her show’s Dec. 29 segment, which was titled “What’s So Funny About 2013″ and included comments on multiple photos from the past year.

In a segment labeled “Romney Reacts to MSNBC for Mocking Family Photo,” the former Massachusetts governor accepted the apology and reiterated that he wanted to move on.

“I recognize that people make mistakes and the folks at MSNBC made a big mistake and they’ve apologized for it and that’s all you can ask for,” he said. “I’m going to move on from that, I’m sure they want to move on from that. Look, I’ve made plenty of mistakes myself and they’ve apologized for this and, you know, I think we can go on from there.”

The Dec. 29 MSNBC segment was widely circulated on social media and became a cable news controversy where pundits and partisan media weighed in throughout the holiday week.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace followed up with Romney by playing a clip of Harris-Perry’s apology in which she stated, “My intention was not malicious, but I broke the ground rule that families are off-limits and for that I am sorry.”

“I think her apology was clearly heartfelt and we accept that,” Romney said after viewing the MSNBC clip.
