News Anchor Inexplicably Says Lady Gaga Sings 'Jigaboo Music'
Beauty queen-turned-news anchor Kristi Capel was also impressed by the performance, though she had a strange way of expressing her feelings. "It's hard to really hear [Gaga's] voice with all the jigaboo music that she does, or whatever you want to call it. She has a gorgeous voice -- I never knew!"
In case you're not a racist from 1901, jigaboo is an antiquated racial slur for African-American.
Capel has since tweeted apologies, claiming she 1) Didn't know the meaning of the word and 2) Didn't know it was a word. Why one would use a word they didn't know was a word is a question for the ages.
@boycourt93 I do apologize if I offended you, I didn't know the meaning behind it or that it was even a word. Thank you for watching.-- Kristi Capel (@Kristi_Capel) February 23, 2015
