Al Roker Defends Meteorologist Fired Over Racial Slur

A TV meteorologist from Rochester, New York, says he was unfairly fired for making a flub on live TV. 


Jeremy Kappell said he got tongue-tied during a broadcast Sunday morning and uttered what sounded like an offensive slur to African-Americans.


 Viewers were stunned and took to social media to vent their outrage. “This guy needs to be fired,” was one tweet. “Wow. Call the station. This should be addressed,” said another. Kappell and his wife, Lisa, spoke to Inside Edition.
