Weather Channel In Iowa Mistakenly Airs “This Is Your Weather My Niggers” During Broadcast

It appears someone is getting fired at The Weather Channel after the network mistakenly broadcast a racial slur during one of their Iowa shows.

A Twitter user was the first to notice the inappropriate message during the ‘Local 8s’ part of the Iowa broadcast. He posted it on his social media, along with a screenshot of the message—“Hello Des Moines, This is your weather my n*****s”.

“I’ve blurred it, but I’m pretty sure you can figure out what it said,” he wrote.

Many people believe that a rogue employee based in Iowa changed what the original Local 8s said to the inappropriate message containing the slur.

“TWC has computer units at cable headends to produce the local on the 8s, and a rogue cable employee must’ve messed with the files and caused it to say that,” said another user on Twitter.

The Weather Channel immediately spoke out against the slur, claiming that it wasn’t intentional and didn’t originate through the main company.

“A graphic during the Weather Channel cable network’s ‘Local on the 8s’ presentation in Des Moines last evening included a racial slur,” the post read. “We removed this graphic as soon as we learned of it. This did not originate with us, and we are in the process of investigating it further. We apologize to our viewers.”
