WSVN has fired producer Robin Cross after video surfaced of her calling her neighbor the “N” word during a dispute over street parking.
“After conducting a thorough investigation, WSVN has terminated a 7 News producer who was caught on cellphone video using a racial slur,” a spokesperson told TVSpy in statement. “WSVN will not tolerate any kind of discriminatory language or behavior.”
As we reported earlier today, Cross and her neighbor have been in a long-running dispute over street parking. Tensions boiled over last week and Cross is heard using the “N” word.
“You don’t f–king own the road,” Cross is heard telling her neighbor Robert Fenton in their Fort Lauderdale, Fla., neighborhood. “Yes, I used the word f–king if you haven’t heard it before. Except for your f–king son who’s dating a f–king n—er. Finally, I said it out loud,” Cross says as she walks away.
Cross has been with WSVN for the last two years. She previously worked in producer and assignment editor roles at WTVJ and WFOR.
