MSNBC Host Denies Using N-Word, Claims She Said “Nakers”: Meanwhile, Social Media Wants Her FIRED

Allison Morris needs to be fired for calling the Los Angeles Lakers the Los Angeles n****** (N-word), according to a growing chorus of outraged observers on social media.

Morris, who was anchoring MSNBC’s coverage of the tragic deaths of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his 13 year old daughter, and 7 other passengers in a fiery helicopter crash, seemed to clearly refer to the Lakers as niggers.

Though Morris has denied the slip of the tongue, she recognizes the stakes, since her job could (and should) be on the line.

So she apologized on Twitter, claiming the millions who heard her say niggers actually heard her say nakers :

“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.” –Allison Morris

But some have already said Bye, Felicia to the now besieged host, and her explanations and apologies, and wonder how anyone could have a slip of the tongue such as that in the first place.

Many social media users have threatened to boycott the network if Morris is not let go.
