Gary Landrieu, candidate for governor and cousin to former New Orleans Mayor Mary Landrieu and U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, let slip an ethnic slur during a live broadcast on a local radio station.

Landrieu is running as an independent and is considered a long-shot in the governor's race. The use of the n-word came up after a caller to the show on WGSO 990 called Landrieu "a piece of s***."

"Let me tell you, when I was a kid we learned about protecting ourselves and defending ourselves because we were called a lot of ugly names as children," said Landrieu. "They called me, 'oh, there's the n***** lovers right there."

The two hosts then cut Landrieu off and admonished him for his language.
