Alison Morris has seen herself become quite the topic of discussion, since the Kobe Bryant broadcast. There have been calls for her firing over her using the word. Many felt there was no reason for her to use such language.

In the wake of all the backlash, Alison Morris took to Twitter, where she responded. Offering an apology, Alison Morris claimed she did not use a racial slur, nor would she ever. Explaining herself, Morris said she stuttered, using the words “Knicks” and “Lakers,” accidentally saying “NAKERS,” and not any other N-words.
