Talking Heads' live concert film 'Stop Making Sense' is one of the most acclaimed concert films ever, and is still (or at least was) regularly screened in cinemas.

However, you may not have seen a promotional video for Jonathan Demme's film that has drawn criticism - especially in the light of the recent surge of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Frontman David Byrne appears in the promo, dressed as different characters as he interviews himself - and some of them were people of colour, which saw the musician in black- and brownface.

Now, he has taken to Twitter to apologise for the skit.

"I acknowledge it was a major mistake in judgement that showed a lack of real understanding," he wrote. "It’s like looking in a mirror and seeing someone else—you’re not, or were not, the person you thought you were.”
