White Mississippi Meteorologist Off Air After Saying ‘Fo Shizzle, My Nizzle’

A longtime Mississippi news anchor appears to no longer be employed with the WLBT news team after quoting a Snoop Dogg lyric deemed racially insensitive during an on air broadcast.

I'm surprised she's female.

This is so dumb.

All this race bullshit is so tiresome.

The politically correct wokeness is sucking the life out of our country.

I would expect much more from a former Mrs. Mississippi International 2000 (as she’s described in the article).

Yes but the diversity commissars tell you it's essential. And then like here it turns around and bites you.

R3, Wait, this Paula Deen granny was Miss Mississippi in 2000?!? Are you sure it wasn’t 1980?

She got fired for quoting Snoop? That’s pretty ridiculous. Did she know what nizzle meant. I sure don’t

MRS. Mississippi, R9

She previously referred to a black colleague’s grandmother as “grandmammy” on air.

I was just going to say she’s got Paula Deen’s hair, & entitled attitude. Bye, Felicia.

[quote] Did she know what nizzle meant. I sure don’t

I didn't either.

The gaffe was made during a discussion about Snoop Dogg’s latest addition to his Cali wine line.

Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle,” when the idea of a Snoop collaboration with a newsroom journalist was raised.

“Nizzle” is slang for the N-word. Bassett, who is white, also tweeted the phrase in 2011.

Charlamagne tha God, defended her this week on the radio.

“I don’t think she should have been fired for that,” he said on “The Breakfast Club.

She might not even know what ‘nizzle’ means, yo. Come on, like stop. That’s not a reason to fire that woman.”

Some social media users have come to Bassett’s defense, while others say it’s not appropriate for a white woman to say that phrase.

Bassett graduated from Mississippi College in 1993 and earned a Master of Science degree from Mississippi State University with a concentration in broadcast meteorology, according to her online resume.

“Can I say it in Mississippi?” “The question is was it still acceptable in the rest of the country 50 years ago?”

Nizzle please.

I'm relieved she didn't say "coon".

by Anonymousreply 21March 26, 2023 9:55 AM

No, r9, she was MRS. Mississippi, meaning she was probably already older. The current Mrs. International's blurb talks about how she's been married for 27 years.

Nice try but it was far Left Progressive twats who are offended by everything and on behalf of everyone else to show how virtuous they are.

The Red wave predicted for the 2022 midterms was premature. It will happen next year.

All this wokeness and anti-white and transgender shit will turn the country Red come November 2024.

Remember the 1984 elections? This is also how it will look like 40 years later.

C'mon, people. They were LOOKING for a way to fire her.

She's an overweight woman in her 50s. Local news only allows men to be fat and over 50 and keep their jobs.

These are journalism facts!

Yes, because the far left has such sway in Mississippi…

The woman could be totally repulsive for all I know. But anyone that called for her firing (for repeating a lyric from a song, a pop culture reference) should immediately be thrown into a wood chipper and made into fertilizer. I'm pretty sure more than 95% of the world is fed up with this overly sensitive nonsense. Wake me up when the woke mob takes a nap.

Has Snoop weighed in? Nice promo for his wine. Hope lady gets her job back. This is dumb.

People would quote that all the time when I was in school and I don't think any of us knew what it meant. I highly doubt she knew either. She probably heard it from one of her kids or their friends and thought it was something new and hip. I think they can excuse this one or at least give her another chance and let apologize.

Letting one race say certain words, but other races are not allowed, is a textbook example of RACISM!
