The Lad does not know when to come out of the rain …

TV meteorologist fired after apparent on-air MLK slur

Updated on: January 8, 2019 / 8:44 AM / CBS News

A TV meteorologist at an NBC affiliate in Rochester, New York was fired after being accused of using an on-air racial slur in reference to Martin Luther King Jr. However, WHEC chief meteorologist Jeremy Kappell says he simply “jumbled” his words during Friday’s broadcast.

A video posted to social media of Kappell’s broadcast shows him apparently calling a park named for the slain civil rights leader “Martin Luther Coon King Jr. Park.”

Jeremy doesn’t look malicious to me, possibly just foolish

It looks like no one told Jeremy the sensitivity attached to using the slang word Coon when referring to someone of the black population.

I can’t say I blame the black community for getting pissed off at the loose lipped weatherman. The guy is not smart enough to when to come out of the rain. Loose lips, sink weathermen.

What I would like to see is the black community GET DOWN on their own people for is using unacceptable ghetto talk. Yet if an outsider uses it, they get offended. Double standards.
