TV anchor Michelle Burdo (pictured) has apologized for using the offensive and derogatory term “colored” when she referred to an African-American woman during a summer hair tips segment Monday morning on her program “CBS Better Mornings Atlanta,” according to Access Atlanta.

“Let me tell you something,” Burdo said to an African-American female hair expert. “I’m not a colored woman, but I have kinky hair just like her and when you straighten it every day, it’s….”  Burdo then realized at some point what had spilled out of her mouth, paused awkwardly, giggled, and then the segment’s guest expert filled the pause with the word healthier.

When Tuesday’s show aired, Burdo apologized for using the antiquated term just minutes before the program ended stating:

“Yesterday, I made a pretty insensitive remark during one of our segments here on ‘Better Mornings Atlanta.’ I apologize…. Once again, I truly want to say from the bottom of my heart that I really am sorry about that comment. I made that comment in reference to my hair color but I used an inappropriate term.” 

Someone posted the video of Burdo’s comment on YouTube and irate viewers took to the site to comment on the co-host’s verbal slippage, but the video has since been removed.

According to Access Atlanta, Lane Michaelsen, the CBS 46 news director, reportedly told them in an e-mail that he made sure Burdo issued an on-air apology but did not state, whether she would be reprimanded.
