In the midst of this morning's Fox 8 morning show, during a discussion of Lady Gaga's performance at the Oscar's last night, Kristi Capel dropped "jigaboo" into the conversation as an adjective to describe Lady Gaga's music. Not good, ladies and gents. Wayne Dawson's reaction is interesting. Clip below. (Fox 8 had the original YouTube video removed; we embedded a fresh one, and if that disappears, you can still see the moment here.)






Capel, in response to some heat on Twitter, did apologize later on, saying she had no idea what the word meant.
