Newscasters are notorious for on-air gaffes when it comes segueing from one topic to another, especially if words on their teleprompter look similar or sound alike. Bill Lunn, a newscaster for KSTP, the local ABC affiliate in Minneapolis, isn’t an exception to that rule.
Lunn did the obvious thing after his slip of the tongue. He went apologized via Twitter.
I celebrate the diversity of our great state and am horrified that I may have offendedpeople. I humbly ask for your forgiveness.

His gaffe will definitely be added to the numerous YouTube newscaster blooper videos floating around.
