Brent Musburger is a sportscaster for ESPN and ABC.
While covering the 2013 BCS National Championship Game on TV, the cameraman cut to a shot of Katherine Webb.
Katherine is a model and beauty queen, Miss Alabama 2012 and dating Alabama's quarterback A.J. McCarron, who was playing in the game.
When she appeared on the screen, Musburger couldn't help but mention she was A.J.'s girlfriend, called her "beautiful" and a "lovely lady."
It was playful and complimentary. Is it inappropriate to call a professional beauty queen beautiful??
There was some backlash and ESPN quickly apologized for Musburger's comments, but Katherine herself didn't think an apology was necessary and was actually flattered!
Check out Katherine on the TODAY Show, explaining how she feels ESPN may have overreacted AFTER THE JUMP!!
