CNN has issued an apology for playing a song titled “Stupid Girls” before a segment about Sarah Palin.

“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 CNN spokesperson told the blog site Mediate.

The song by Pink was the lead-in to a story about the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate supporting Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, who is facing public backlash for opposing same-sex marriage.

Palin stopped by one of the fast-food restaurants with husband Todd on Sunday, then posted a picture of the visit on Twitter and her Facebook page.

She also posted the message: “Stopped by Chick-fil-A in the Woodlands to support a great business.”

CNN anchor Randi Kaye started the story by saying, “Sarah Palin is apparently hungry for chicken and controversy.”

    So corrupt! You make a mistake and sing a slave song for a black man and watch how the entire media will ask for your head. This is an outrage and its no wonder that CNN has absolute no ratings
