Earlier today, Fox 8's Kristi Capel marveled over Lady Gaga's Oscar performance by saying that generally, "It's hard to hear her voice with all the jigaboo music...that she...whatever you want to call it...jigaboo, haha!"

Later, when she was called out for using a derogatory term for black people to describe Lady Gaga's music, she apologized on Twitter, explaining, "I had no idea it was a word or what it meant."

Kristi Capel, who makes her living by speaking in public: "Sometimes I just say words and I don't know what they mean! It just happens! Sorry I didn't realize this was being filmed or that I'm a person or that life is real."
