Cleveland Newscaster Uses Racial Slur to Describe Lady Gaga’s Oscars Performance [Video]
On Monday while talking about Lady Gaga's performance at The Oscars, where she sang a musical medley tribute to "The Sound of Music," it seemed like Capel was trying to pay Lady Gaga a compliment. But she failed miserably.
Capel was saying how Gaga's voice sounded good "without all the jigaboo music" that usually surrounds her vocals.
Yup. That's a racial slur. And it's made even worse by the fact her co-anchor is an African-American.
Obviously, people complained.
Capel replied back on Twitter, claiming she didn't know what the word meant or that it was even a word at all.
So, that begs the question: If you didn't know it was a word, then why did you say it in the first place?
