Meteorologist appears to use racial slur on live TV and gets fired


The chief meteorologist at WHEC-TV was relieved of his position after video of a newscast showed him apparently using a racial slur. During the Friday evening broadcast of News10NBC at 5:30, chief meteorologist Jeremy Kappell showed a photograph of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Square Park in downtown Rochester. While describing the photo, Kappell utters what appears to be the phrase "Dr. Luther C**n King Jr. Park." The term is a commonly-used racial slur to refer to African-American people.
