Oh, CNBC. With all the songs about money the business channel could have played on its network, why would it choose a rap song and then negligently fail to edit out nasty lyrics? Granted, not much of a song would be left, but…we come full circle, why choose a rap song?
So, while Fox News’ Megyn Kelly gets called a racist for saying Santa is white, CNBC went and played an unedited, very offensive section of a Chris Brown song as it went to a commercial break on Monday.
As reported and originally published by The Blaze, the lyrics clearly heard on CNBC – “I’m getting, getting paid. Every single day. With my n****s, my n****s Chris and Jay” - forced anchor Kelly Evans to come back with a humble apology on behalf of CNBC.
“An important thing we want to mention here: We accidentally aired a piece of music this hour during a tease with inappropriate lyrics,” she said. “That obviously should not have been on the air and we deeply apologize for that and for any offense that it may have caused,” Evans said.
