CNN Plays Pink's 'Stupid Girls' For Sarah Palin Chick-Fil-A Segment (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

CNN's musical choice for a segment about Sarah Palin on Sunday is raising some eyebrows.

Palin recently weighed in on the storm surrounding Chick-Fil-A and its stance against gay marriage. She tweeted a picture of herself at the restaurant and a message of support for the chain on Saturday.

Mediaite reports that CNN opened a segment about Palin's tweet with Pink's "Stupid Girls" on Sunday. "Sarah Palin is apparently hungry for chicken and controversy," anchor Randi Kaye said.

CNN later told Mediaite that the song choice was unintentional. "The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story. We regret any perception that they were planned together," a network spokesperson said in a statement.
