What Year Is This?

Las Vegas TV Weatherman Rob Blair was shitcanned for using a racial slur when referring to Martin Luther King Jr. during his weathercast.

And it wasn't even an ironically funny, contemporary, "hip," Chappelle-style slur. When will these old-school racists get with the program?

In a statement, Blair apologized and said the slur would have been taken in the vein it was intended had he been able to apply blackface before air as he'd hoped.
