A Baltimore Fox station had to apologize to Black Lives Matter protester, Tawanda Jones, after they were busted for deceptively editing a protest chant to say "Kill a cop."
The chant went "we won't stop, we can't stop, 'til killer cops, are in cell blocks," according to C-SPAN footage.
But WBFF cut the audio short and told viewers that the words were in fact "we won't stop, we can't stop, so kill a cop."
In typical Fox style, the apology came with an "our bad" statement. Honest mistake.
The Fox station apologized to the protesters and to Jones both on its Facebook page and in an interview with Jones.
The Facebook post claimed that the station’s engineers misheard what the protesters were chanting and called it an “honest misunderstanding.”
Mrs. Jones is skeptical.
"The interesting part that really gets to me is, where you guys edited it and stopped — like, how could that be a mistake?" she said.
"Once you play that whole thing, you would know that's not something that's being said," she added.
Luckily for Fox in Baltimore, Gawker caught their honest mistake.
Tawanda Jones' brother, Tyrone West, died in police custody in 2013
