Racial slur seen in TV weather forecast: ‘We apologize to our viewers’
A weather channel in Des Moines Iowa is apologizing to its viewers. The apology is in response to a racial slur shown on screen during a broadcast.
The graphic on the screen read Hello Des Moines, This is your weather my Ni$$gers.
Someone took a picture of the graphic and tweeted it. That tweet has since gone viral.
The weather channel responded saying “We removed this graphic as soon as we learned of it. This did not originate with us, and we are in the process of investigating it further. We apologize to our viewers.”
And I agree with one of the comments I read on this thread. There is definitely one job open at this station for sure. Someone quit or is about to be fired.

The pope’s apology in Canada was historic, but for some Indigenous people, not enough
The pope traveled to Canada to apologize for a history of physical and sexual abuse of Indigenous children in Catholic-run residential schools.
Pope Francis said “I am sorry,” “I humbly beg forgiveness for the evil committed by so many Christians against the Indigenous peoples,”
A 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission report concluded that “[children] were abused, physically and sexually, and they died in numbers that would not have been tolerated in any school system anywhere in the country.”
The report said the schools were designed “not to educate” the Indigenous children, “but primarily to break their link to their culture and identity,” and that the establishment and operation of the schools “can best be described as ‘cultural genocide.'”
According to government statistics officially, 4,120 children died while in the care of the schools, mostly from diseases such as tuberculosis.
This country has so much horrific history…its sad.
