Minneapolis ABC affiliate anchor Bill Lunn was trying to make one of those punchy intros that local news shows love so dearly. Unfortunately, his attempt at “pledging allegiance” featured a homosexual epithet instead.
Obviously a totally innocent blooper. Unless it’s just Bill Lunn making a courageous stand for his rights to equality. Yeah! Hoping it’s the latter and, even if it isn’t, let’s pretend it is. I salute you, Bill Lunn, you courageous gay soldier.
UPDATE: As Twitter user @Antimidas pointed out to me — and you can see if you start the video at 0:00 — Lunn’s blooper followed a news story about a church dropping their support for the Boy Scouts in the wake of their updated stance on homosexuality. Awkward.
