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’s hard to really hear her voice with all the jigaboo music — whatever you want to call it — jigaboo!”
That’s not only offensive, it’s downright nonsensical!
Kristi later tweeted an apology, presumably after she was given an overdue education during the commercial break! She wrote:
I deeply regret my insensitive comment. I didn’t know the meaning and would never intentionally use hurtful language. I sincerely apologize

We wonder if Kristi’s co-anchor Wayne Dawson accepted her apology.
His face when she uses the antiquated racial slur — it’s like he can’t believe what he’s hearing!
Watch and decide if she know what she was saying or not (below)!
