The daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. is reacting to the recent firing of Channel 10 meteorologist Jeremy Kappell, after he uttered what sounded like a racial slur on the air last week.
In an interview with TMZ, Dr. Bernice King said there has to be some repercussions, but says that there could have been a better way of handling the situation besides firing Kappell. You can watch the TMZ interview below.
Kappell was fired Sunday. He says he was speaking too fast and jumbled his words. As off noon today, an online petition calling for his reinstatement has more than 46,000 signatures.
