As promised, WDRB morning anchor Lindsay Allen apologized today for potentially offending viewers with a slip of the tongue that some say was a racial slur.

Allen and WDRB news director Barry Fulmer say the morning show host stumbled on the words “at least” while discussing golfer Tiger Woods. However, a clip of the statement was released online, and many who saw it say Allen said the N word.

As Fulmer told WFPL yesterday, Allen denies she said the word, so she did not apologize for saying it.

Here is her apology:

“Yesterday a viewer contacted us over a comment I made during this newscast. I want to assure everyone that the comments I made were misunderstood. I apologize if any of our viewers were offended.”
