Anchor says Lady Gaga’s lovely voice hidden by “jigaboo” music

She is from Northern Kentucky. There is NO WAY she did not know the offensiveness of the word jigaboo. She probably grew up hearing it on the regular…probably ingrained in her. This was not the first time jigaboo came out of her mouth. It was just the first time she was stupid enough to say it on live TV. This is how it was so easy to say it on a live broadcast. If she truly did not know what the meaning is, as a professional journalist, why would she say it? Pro football players get suspended BEFORE they are tried in a court of law, Keith Olbermann gets suspended for having a heated twitter debate about the Penn State “Thon”, and THIS chick utters a racial slur on live TV and SHE still has a job. Maybe that was her audition for Foxs News Channel…

Local Fox anchor complains about Lady Gaga’s ‘jigaboo music’ during Oscars coverage

Kristi Capel, an anchor for Cleveland’s Fox 8, complained about “jigaboo music” during Monday morning coverage of the Academy Awards.

WJW New in the Morning anchor Wayne Dawson reported on Monday that singer Lady Gaga had performed a tribute for the 50th anniversary of the Sound of Music at Sunday night’s Oscars.

“Lady Gaga, surprising a lot of people last night with this tribute to Sound of Music,” Dawson said, adding that actress Julie Andrews called it “wonderful.”

Capel remarked that she had also been surprised by Lady Gaga’s performance.

“It’s hard to really hear her voice with all the jigaboo music — whatever you want to call it — jigaboo!” Capel opined.

“She has a nice voice,” Dawson, who is black, said after a nervous laugh.

“She has a gorgeous voice,” Capel agreed. “I never knew. Very nice.”

According to Dictionary.com, “Jigaboo” is an “extremely disparaging and offensive” term for black people. Culture blogger Rafael Otto writes that the term was coined as description of dancing black slaves in the 1800s.

After several people complained to Capel on Twitter, she cut and pasted the same explanation to each of them.

“I apologize if I offended you, I had no idea it was a word or what it meant. Thank you for watching,” Capel wrote.
