Girl bye! MSNBC anchor fired over allegedly saying n-word live when reporting on Kobe Bryant’s death
MSNBC anchor Alison Morris responded after a video went viral of her making a Freudian slip of what sounded like the n-word when reporting on the death of Kobe Bryant.
Morris told MSNBC viewers during the broadcast that Bryant was “perfectly cast” on the Los Angeles Lakers, and when she referred to the Lakes, whe instead said what sounded very much like “niggers.” However she defended it saying she slipped and said “Nakers.”
Earlier today, while reporting on the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s passing, I unfortunately stuttered on air, combining the names of the Knicks and the Lakers to say “Nakers.” Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term. I apologize for the confusion this caused.

Morris has reportedly been fired. Fair game. Bye girl.
