The former chief meteorologist of an NBC station in Rochester who was axed earlier this year for allegedly using a racial slur during a live broadcast filed a lawsuit Monday against his old employer.

Jeremy Kappell filed suit against WHEC-TV, Hubbard Broadcasting the station’s general manager, Richard Reingold for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress, according to WHAM.

The article goes on to state the following:

Kappell was canned on Jan. 4, days after a broadcast in which he appeared to refer to Rochester’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Square Park, as “Dr. Luther C–n, King Jr. Park.”

At the time, Kappell attributed the incident to a “verbal slip” – a claim echoed in Kappell’s lawsuit against his old station, which faults his utterance as a “linguistic error.”
