Nigerian lawyer leaves British Tv viewers in shock after using N-word live on air
Viewers were left in shock when a Nigerian born guest lawayer, Dr. Sola Sogbamimu, used the N-word twice during Monday’s episode of Good Morning Britain.
Dr Shogbamimu, a regular guest on the breakfast programme was on the show to discuss whether Swing Low, Sweet Chariot should be banned at rugby matches because of its connection to slavery.
She said: “I don’t use the N-word, and what I mean is the n***** word.
“I understand rap stars and black youths have almost taken that word and turned it on its head, and appropriated it for themselves.
“What I find really interesting is white people who go: ‘Well, if you can use it then I can use it.’
“That tells you they’re desperate to use the word n***** – but if it comes from a white person’s mouth, it is racist.”
Piers and his co-host Susanna Reid did not acknowledge her use of the word.
But viewers were shocked and took to Twitter to post about it.
One tweeted: “Did she just say the “N” word at 8.30 a.m??”
“When Dr Shola said the n word twice in a minute at 8:30 on a Monday,” another posted alongside a shocked cat GIF.
