Racial Slur or Slip Up in Rochester, NY [VIDEO]
Meteorologist Jeremy Kappell is weathering a storm in Rochester, NY of his after, in my opinion, a slip up that cost him his job...which in my opinion was a bit over the top for WHEC-TV 10. But the reaction to the slip-up, or as some are deeming it, a racial slur, caused a firestorm on Social Media and even had Rochester's Mayor asking for the Meteorologist to be terminated...which hasn't turned out too very great for her either.
So you decide; was it a slip of the tongue or a racial slur which some are suggesting was a Freudian slip based o the Meteorologist jokingly using the word among friends, which unfortunately came out Live, On-Air?
