Alison Morris apologizes for any confusion after the internet slams her for allegedly saying the N-Word.

(AllHipHop News) MSNBC anchor Alison Morris is in hot water after allegedly saying a racial slur after reporting the passing of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

Morris was discussing Bryant’s death when some thought they heard her say ni**ers.

Kobe died early Sunday morning along with his daughter and seven other people, after his helicopter lost control and crashed into the side of a mountain in Calabasas, California. 

Alison Morris has denied saying the slur saying she accidentally stuttered and combined the Knicks and the Lakers names.

"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.” Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term," Morris said. "I apologize for the confusion this caused.Social media will not cut her any slack and have been going in on her social media accounts."

A petition to get her fired has been surfacing on as many still remain skeptical of her statement.

i cant believe yall idiots are still hanging on to this fuckery. i knew she didnt say that the first time i seen and heard it. smh


this chick is watching too much south park...Kobe was a Laker his whole career - where would the Knicks ever come in to play? She's trying to get a pass because she works for know for damn skippy if it were that other network there would've been protests outside the station ...


😂😂😂I don’t think she said the N word. Cmon it might of sounded like it but I believe her explanation. Give this woman the benefit of the doubt instead of jumping on the bandwagon to get her fired. Stop it. And if you feel some type of way about what I said you know what you can go do


What the tape say tho...
