This was not a good way to start the week, and now she's being punished for her mess up!
Kristi Capel is an anchor in Cleveland for WJW Channel 8's morning newscast, but the Fox affiliate won't be in the newsroom anytime soon after she screwed up in a horrendous way!
The news anchor was going over the Oscars this past Monday and started to talk about Lady GaGa and her performance at the big show. But when she dropped the racial slur "Jigaboo" not once but twice… well, people became very upset with her!
And although she apologized for her words, that apparently was not enough!
The news anchor who was once a beauty queen has since been suspended for

Wow, the Oscars were way more controversial than we thought! At least, the media surrounding them was.

Kristi Capel, of Cleveland's Fox 8 News, was remarking on Lady GaGa's Sound Of Music tribute performance when she used terminology so offensive — and frankly confusing — that you have to see it to believe it.

It looks like this situation has just gotten WAY worse!
When the video of Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson smoking weed hit the internet, fans of One Direction went CRAZY!
Some were even cutting themselves to try and get the boys to STOP smoking!
However, it seems that the boys toking up isn't the only incriminating action in the video!
Louis, apparently, can be heard using a racial slur in the video when addressing Zayn!
Not okay boys!

We can't believe someone would do this to a kid!!!
A man was arrested in Minneapolis after he shouted racial slurs at an eight-year-old, punched him in the face, and then stole his iPad!
What the EFF.
Apparently, the 32-year-old man, Aaron Wayne Stillday, approached the child after he was leaving his daycare center with the iPad in hand.
He screamed at the child:

We all kind of knew an apology would be coming, right?!
Madonna recently posted a pic of her son Rocco Ritchie on Instagram, and accompanied it with a racial hashtag!
The 55-year-old singer later deleted the pic and kind of apologized, but now Her Madgesty has a real “I’m sorry” for the world! Her statement read:
"I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N word on Instagram. It was not meant as a racial slur.. I am not a racist. There's no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention.. It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white. I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me."
We forgive you, Madonna, and hopefully everyone else will too.
But we have to wonder again why she would even think that using the n-word is okay!
