NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Mika Brzezinski has apologized for making a homophobic slur on the air.

On Wednesday morning, the "Morning Joe" co-host referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as a "wannabe dictator's butt boy."

Brzezinski made the comment in after Pompeo appeared on "Fox & Friends" and gave what she called an evasive response to the Trump administration's response to Jamal Khashoggi's murder.

"Maybe don’t equate homosexuality with Mike Pompeo carrying water for the murderous regime in Saudi Arabia," said one Twitter user.

Brzezinski agreed and said it was a "super bad" choice of words. She added, "SO SORRY!"
