An announcer for an Oklahoma high school girls basketball game was caught during the broadcast calling girls on one of the teams a racial slur as they kneeled during the national anthem.
In a video shared on Twitter, it doesn’t appear the announcers realize their mic is working. As the students from Norman High School kneel, one asked “They’re kneeling?”
“I hope Norman gets their a– kicked,” an announcer continued. “F—— n——.”
The Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA) said the broadcast team for the state tournament game against Midwest City High School was hired by the National Federation of High School (NFHS) Network, which owns the video rights.
A NFHS statement, sent to NBC News from OSSAA’s Sports Information Director, said the network was “sickened by the comments.”
