A CNN correspondent has apologized for saying the words “f*cking n*gger” during a live broadcast. Susan Candiotti made the remarks as she was quoting a Facebook post from one of the suspects in the racially-charged shootings in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“‘Today is two years that my dad has been gone, shot by’ — and please excuse the language, it’s very sensitive — ‘shot by a f—ing [N-word],’” she said.
Candiotti was not edited when she made her remark, but the words were blurred on the graphic next to her face. CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield said, “We apologize to our viewers for such profanity being used on our air.”
Later, Candiotti apologized for her words.
In quoting someone else’s words, I repeated their offensive and inappropriate language. I deeply regret it,” she said, according to Mediabistro.com
