ESPN Fires Sportscaster Over Sexist Remarks


After veteran sportscaster Ron Franklin made sexist remarks to Jeannine Edwards in an off-air spat on Friday, ESPN pulled him from the next broadcast, and has now announced that they have let him go.

Franklin called Edwards “sweet baby” (or “sweetcakes,” according to other accounts), as well as an “asshole.” He also told her that she should leave the conversation he was having “to the boys.”

Said an ESPN spokesperson:

"Based on what occurred last Friday, we have ended our relationship with him."

We’re glad ESPN made the decision to fire him — there’s enough sexism in sports already!!
