News Anchor Decided Use a Slur to Describe Lady Gaga’s Music During a Broadcast

You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone (besides maybe Shonda Rhimes) who wasn’t impressed by Lady Gaga‘s Sound of Music medley last night at the Academy Awards—even her detractors.

One of them, Ohio news anchor and former Miss Missouri Kristi Capel, was pleasantly surprised by Gaga’s performance but in her attempt to commend it, she let slip a remark many are finding fairly offensive.

While talking about the tribute, Capel said usually she has a hard time discerning Gaga’s voice “with all of the jigaboo music that she does.” Her co-anchor’s embarrassed facial expression is the reaction says it all.
