A Washington D.C.-area news anchor was suspended for fat-shaming obese vaccine recipients on Twitter.

Blake McCoy, who works for WTTG, a local Fox affiliate, was suspended after he tweeted his annoyance over obese people getting priority access to vaccines.

Obesity is one of the pre-existing conditions that gives people priority to receive vaccines in many states.

"I'm annoyed obese people of all ages get priority access before all essential workers," McCoy tweeted Tuesday. "When most stayed home, we went into work everyday last March, April, May and everyday since putting ourselves & loved ones at risk. Vaccinate all essential workers. Then obese."

His tweet didn't go over well with many on Twitter who retweeted his post to the attention of his employer.

After clapping back at some of his outraged followers, McCoy apologized and deleted the original tweet.

In response to a follower who noted his deleted tweet, McCoy said, "You're right, I deleted because frankly, who has the time to argue with strangers on the internet."

Twitter users called for McCoy to be terminated after he posted photos of maskless men partying at numerous gay clubs in Chicago and other cities.

McCoy, who is openly LGBT+, has engaged in risky behavior, such as hooking up with men he met on the Tinder dating app.

In a tweet dated Feb. 6, McCoy wrote: "Tinder date is arriving now for wine, pizza, and monopoly. We've never met. If I die tonight, I want you to know I had a good run. Stay well everyone."

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.
