WHEC meteorologist Jeremy Kappell was fired after it appears he used a racial slur during his forecast. During a weather forecast on Friday which showed a live shot of the city's Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, Jeremy Kappell appeared to refer to it as "Martin Luther Coon King Jr. Park."
He took to social media Monday to explain what happened. Jeremy Kappell has denied using any slur, and said he just stumbled on his words.
