Via CNN has issued an apology for playing a profanity laced song by Coolio in the middle of the afternoon yesterday (May 27th). The network played an uncensored version of Coolio’s “Fantastic Voyage” at the end of a segment about a 103-year-old Coatesville, Pennsylvania woman named Gladys Flamer, who still enjoyed driving her Cadillac.
The Redding News Review reported that anchor/host Kyra Phillips immediately apologized for the embarrassing mistake after a commercial break. “We aired some music a few minutes ago, and, obviously for those of you that heard it, it was the wrong music that aired,” Phillips said. “We apologize for that. It was a terrible mistake. And we’re working very hard to make up for it.”
