Just seconds after the blooper occurred, Lunn reported on the upcoming Twin Cities Pride parade. So yeah, his slipup probably couldn't have occurred at a more unfortunate time.
Here's the video:
Afterward, Lunn poked some fun at himself on Twitter:
@mopinionated Haha yes... a bit of an unfortunate slip. Thanks for pointing it out. Haha.-- Bill Lunn (@BillLunnKSTP) June 12, 2013
His mishap comes just two months after KSTP fired reporter Mark Saxenmeyer for inserting an "inappropriate gay reference" into a story. As an inside joke with coworkers, Saxenmeyer, who is gay, characterized two gay Twin Cities fathers as "big HOMO dads," but a copy editor missed it and the offending passage was published unedited online.
@scottlambrecht4 years and they couldn't get me on the KSTP blooper reel. I guess they've got me now.-- Bill Lunn (@BillLunnKSTP) June 12, 2013
