Earlier today, while reporting on the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s passing, I unfortunately stuttered on air, combining the names of the Knicks and the Lakers to say “Nakers.” Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term. I apologize for the confusion this caused.

The Cancel Culture is coming for MSNBC host Alison Morris. She mangled her words on a broadcast today, mashing together “Knicks” and “Lakers” while referring to the shocking death of Kobe Bryant.
Many people think she intentionally uttered the N-word, a ludicrous take but – on Twitter – it is somehow given credence.
Here let me slow it down for you. She’s clearly NOT saying Nakers. She said Nigg*rs. You’re in denial. pic.twitter.com/nb2N2ZWDle

What professional network TV host would willingly ruin their career, reputation, and life by uttering the nuclear bomb of racist terms? Get serious, people.
Talking live on radio or TV for extended periods of time creates mistakes, stutters, mangled words, spoonerisms, and dropped phrases. None of it is intentional. It’s a natural result of voluminous content rolling out extemporaneously as more info is flowing back at the person speaking.
Think of an airplane pilot talking to air traffic control while lots of other fast paced flight condition is occurring in real time. It’s a lot for the brain to process so an expectation of perfect, perpetual vocal flow goes beyond human ability.
Hopefully the idiot mayor of Rochester, New York won’t lead another asinine, virtue signaling campaign of online terror to extinguish Morris’ career. The Rochester mayor destroyed the life and career of meteorologist Jeremy Kappell, who mangled words while pronouncing Martin Luther King’s name on TV.
Got an update today from NY meteorologist @JeremyKappell whose career was destroyed by a spineless boss at @news10nbc BTW, another mangled MLK on St. Louis TV. Apology. Job kept. 🙌🏾 Jeremy is now LIVE AT 9:45 online 🎙️https://t.co/ADf7etLouf #workerrights pic.twitter.com/gW5l52OPba
