First Kanye. Now this. NBC anchor Lauren Podell resigned after she was caught using the “n-word.”

According to RawStory, Podell told a co-worker, “I’m tired of reporting on these n*****s killing each other in Detroit.” Word quickly made its way around the office and Podell soon handed in her resignation.

An excerpt from e-mail sent by the station’s General Manager, Marla Drutz, allegedly reads:

I wanted to let you know that Lauren Podell has resigned from WDIV effective immediately. Lauren asked me to convey the following: “During my time at WDIV I have created many friendships that I will continue to cherish”. If you receive any media inquiries please forward them to Jamie or me. Thanks.

The story began making headlines after Sam Riddle, former chief of staff for former Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, quoted Podell on Twitter.

Trump got y’all tripping’.
