KTLA 5 Morning News feature reporter Allie Mac Kay kept her language clean during a Magic Monday segment — despite how she’s being portrayed in a doctored clip circulated on the web on Thursday.
In the segment, originally aired on May 20, 2013, magician Justin Willman had Mac Kay focus her attention on a glass pitcher in her left hand.
Willman held his hands above the glassware as it shattered, surprising Mac Kay.
“My gosh,” Mac Kay said. “You got to warn me of this crap, Justin.”
In a doctored clip — published on Gawker and other sites Thursday — a portion of Mac Kay’s reaction was bleeped, giving the impression she used foul language live on air.
A similar gag is often featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in the show’s “This Week in Unnecessary Censorship” segment.
