“This is my four year old daughter, Abigael, after hearing one too many mentions of the election.” A description wrote on the YouTube Bronco Bamma girl crying video, with 9NEWS reporting that the one filming is Elizabeth Evans, Abigael‘s mother, and is from Fort Collins, Colorado.

According to the report, a viewer told them Elizabeth and Abigael were on their way to a grocery store that day and listening to NPR radio. The mother noticed that her daughter was crying, and asked her why. The poor girl responded and she said she is tired of hearing the endless news about the upcoming election.

“I’m tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney.” Abigael told her mother, while in tears and playing with her hair. Her mother asked her if that is the reason why she is crying, and she said “yes.” “It’ll be over soon, Abby…The election will be over soon.” Her mother replied, and the girl said, “Okay” but still cried and her mother pacified her.

On Wednesday, October 31, the story of the Bronco Bamma girl have reached to NPR‘s knowledge and released a statement on their post titled ‘Dear Little Girl: Sorry We Made You Cry About ‘Bronco Bamma‘ And Mitt Romney,’ and apologized to her.

“On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign’s gone on long enough for us, too. Let’s just keep telling ourselves: “Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.” NPR wrote.
