An embarrassing moment occurred when one of CNN's reporters suffered a Freudian slip of the tongue and uttered the words, "George Floyd is looking down from prison" during coverage of a memorial service for the slain Minnesota man on Thursday.

A Freudian slip is the utterance of an unconscious subdued wish or a suppressed thought.

CNN has not commented on the gaffe.

A news anchor for MSNBC apologized after she mispronounced the L.A. Lakers team as "Los Angeles ni**ers" while covering the tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, 41, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others.

The helicopter went down in extreme fog conditions near Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday morning. A flight scan shows the Sikorsky S-76b chopper dropped 4,000 feet per minute before hitting the ground in the hills above Calabasas.

Allison Morris, who anchored MSNBC's coverage of the tragedy, apparently suffered a slip of the tongue while pronouncing Bryant's former team.

Morris said Bryant was "perfectly cast on the Los Angeles ni**ers, er Lakers."

Social media erupted with allegations that Morris is a covert racist who is comfortable using the racial slur - and that she accidentally uttered it during a Freudian moment.

A Freudian slip is a verbal mistake that is linked to an unconscious thought. A Freudian slip usually occurs when the speaker is thinking what she said.

As the furor raged on Twitter.com, Morris tweeted an apology, denying she uttered the N-word.

"Earlier today, while reporting on the tragic news of Kobe Bryant's passing, I unfortunately stuttered on air, combining the names of the Knicks and the Lakers to say 'Nakers'. Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term. I apologize for the confusion this caused."

But Black Twitter was not convinced that Morris has never uttered the racial slur behind closed doors.

A petition calling for Morris to be fired from MSNBC garnered more than 700 signatures.

Michelle Burdo

CBS46 host Michelle Burdo has apologized for using the archaic racial descriptor 'colored' while speaking to a woman of African descent.

“Let me tell you something,” Burdo said during a live discussion with an African-American hair expert, “I’m not a colored woman but I have kinky hair just like her and when you straighten it every day, it’s...” she paused, searching for the right word. "Healthier," she added.

President Obama and Dan Pfeiffer

President Obama and Dan Pfeiffer

Earlier today, a senior advisor to President Obama tweeted what his subconscious mind was already thinking.

Dan Pfeiffer was responding to a Twitter discussion about political polarization and how the Internet and social media plays a major factor.

He tweeted: "Also a much nigger factor on the right."

What Pfieffer meant to tweet was the word 'bigger' -- but since 'nigger' was already occupying his subconscious mind, that's what came out.

Why is Obama's senior advisor lollygagging around on social media anyway? Is he one of the 800,000 furloughed non-essential workers?

Susannah Collins

After caving to intense pressure from women's rights groups, the major sports networks began an experiment by hiring sexy women to announce major sports competitions from the sidelines. The experiment failed miserably due to two simple truths: no matter how sexy she is, a feminine voice is too distracting to men while they're watching testosterone-filled sports. The second simple truth is horny women can't control their desires around sports Gods like LeBron James.

Today, Comcast SportsNet Chicago announced they were firing a female sports reporter who had a Freudian slip live on the air.
