The conservative website, The Daily Caller, made a major gaffe yesterday when the site’s Twitter account featured a variation of the n-word.
The original tweet was directed at Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus and linked to a story on the Daily Caller website about a Chicago rapper calling himself “Rhymes Priebus.”
“Hey @Reince, why didn’t you tell us you were moonlighting as a rapper? Turns out our GOP Chair is HNIC…” HNIC is a slang term meaning “Head N-word in Charge.”
The tweet was deleted a short time later and an apology was posted.
