In what appears to be an extremely unfortunate mispronunciation of the word “inaugural,” a reporter for Washington, D.C.’s local Fox affiliate dropped the n-bomb on live T.V.

On their Thursday broadcast of Fox 5’s morning news, reporter Holly Morris made an unfortunate flub in teasing an upcoming segment about how the Willard Hotel will be celebrating the upcoming inauguration of President Barack Obama with a giant gingerbread house.

“Is there any other way that you would want to celebrate it?” Morris said. “Hey listen, we are live this morning at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel. It’s been a key i-nigger inaugural spot for 150 years. This inauguration of course is no exception. They have special things, like this amazing gingerbread house that was created by Gary O’Hanlon — the pastry chef here. It only took them about 220 hours to do it. Take a look at that.”
