News Anchor Kristi Capel Says Lady Gaga Sings ‘Jigaboo Music’ After Oscar’s Performance

As part of last night’s Oscar’s performance, it included a stunning Lady Gaga.Lady Gaga performed a medley from The Sound Of Music at last night’s Oscars ceremony,  blowing away the audience and the film’s original star, Julie Andrews.

News anchor Kristi Capel was also impressed by the performance, though she had confused herself upon expressing her feelings. “It’s hard to really hear [Gaga’s] voice with all the jigaboo music that she does, or whatever you want to call it. She has a gorgeous voice — I never knew!”

In case you’re not a racist from 1901, jigaboo is an antiquated racial slur for African-American.

Capel has since tweeted apologies, claiming she 1) Didn’t know the meaning of the word and 2) Didn’t know it was a word. Why one would use a word they didn’t know was a word is a question for the ages.

@Kristi_Capel: what the hell is wrong with you?

@boycourt93: I do apologize if I offended you, I didn’t know the meaning behind it or that it was even a word. Thank you for watching.

This is a lesson for everyone, please don’t think of a “word” without knowing it is an actual word and then use it to the public!
