In this video, she is “hunting for [insert n-word here].” The cameraman who says Ducan is her future sister in law and Ducan looks at the camera holding her beer bottle and says “Get those [insert n-word here].”
A Lt. Chad Gibson wrote in an email Thursday that Ducan (he did not name her), was “in the process of being released from her enlistment in the Air Force.” In an interview with the Air Force Times, Gibson said that Duncan was being released because the Air Force expects “all airmen to adhere to our core values, and treat others with a high level of dignity and respect.”
Duncan also did an interview, hers was with The Daily News and in it, she says that “I was intoxicated. I have black friends, I have black people in my family, I didn’t mean it. I didn’t know that I was being [recorded]. I am so sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt anybody, I was drunk. I need to seek help.”
