TONGUE SLIPPING

TV Anchor Pledges Allegiance To The “Fag” While Reporting Gay Pride Story

Oh, Bill Lunn, welcome to meme infamy. The KSTP anchor from St. Paul, Minnesota had a doozy of a Freudian slip while reporting on the Twin Cities Gay Pride Festival.

After letting loose the fags of war on live television, Lunn tried to downplay the incident, tweeting “Haha… unfortunate slip of the tongue. Getting razzed at work a bit” and “4 years and they couldn’t get me on the KSTP blooper reel. I guess they’ve got me now.”

Of course, he wasn’t going to get away with it that easily. Not on the Twitter, where people are just waiting to tweet you to task.  Lunn eventually apologized, on several occasions, but some people are like a lazy dog with a discarded bone:

    Innocent mistake, channel your outrage towards someone who deserves it.

    Is there anyone who uses twitter who isn’t a c*nt?, the correct and only answer is No.

    This was quite clearly a slip, and nothing else, it’s clear given the body language and correction, there was clearly no intention in the language used.

    It’s sad that people aren’t smart enough to see this, but then it is twitter, and it’s full of fucking useless fucks.

    Typical extremist trying to make a controversy out of nothing. Save the fake outrage for real issues.

    So… is the mechanism that allows him to feel broken? (/KissKissBangBang)

    An innocent mistake, the guy just seems dumb. Reading from a screen has been known to disrupt even the most advanced of minds

    While some people try to dismiss entire paragraphs that way, in this case, it clearly really is a simple slip of the tongue and nothing more.

    @stfallon1028: I don’t know about dumb, but the screen makes it even less likely the slip had anything to do with the story being what it was, since that part likely wouldn’t even have been visible yet.

    As my partner as said, in his infinite wisdom, Facebook is full of people that have nothing better to do than be on Facebook. The same applies to Twitter. Seriously, the dude messed up, so they feel the need to hold him to task. Although, they probably do worse in their daily lives and people do not extend them the same “curtsey.”

    Bill Lunn is a great anchor here in the Twin Cities. It is clear that this was a simple slip of the tongue. And to clarify, he didn’t make the slip WHILE reporting on Twin Cities Pride. It was during the story that happened to be BEFORE he reported on Pride. He definitely gets a pass from me on this.

    I wouldn’t mind people pledging their allegiance to me.

    I like to play with words, so this one made me smile. Thanks, man.
