MSNBC Anchor Denies Saying Slur During Kobe Bryant Clip

The former Los Angeles Laker died in a private helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, was among those confirmed dead. 

Morris was talking about Bryant’s death when some thought they heard her say “n****rs” in a now-viral clip. 

She denied using the slur in a tweet Sunday evening.

“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,’” Morris tweeted.

“Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term. I apologize for the confusion this caused,” she continued. 

Shaquille O’Neal, who won three championships with Bryant, said that he felt “sick” over the loss of of his friend.
