Cincinnati Reds announcer Thom Brennaman said a homophobic slur between innings during a game Wednesday night, leading to his removal from the broadcast for the remainder of the game.
Ahead of the seventh inning in the Cincinnati teams game against the Kansas City Royals, Brennaman was heard saying the slur.
During the second game of the team's doubleheader, Brennaman apologized for the slur on the air.
I made a comment earlier tonight, that I guess went out over the air, that I am deeply ashamed of. If I have hurt anyone out there, I cant tell you how much I say from the bottom of my heart that I am so very, very sorry, Brennaman said.
I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith, he said, before stopping to announce a home run in the game.
I cant begin to tell you how deeply sorry I am. That is not who I am and it never has been," he continued. "Id like to think maybe I could have some people that can back that up. I am very, very sorry, and I beg for your forgiveness, he said.

What did he say?
they always forget the microphone is on
Probably the same word that Dire Straits had no problem with in Money for Nothing and Elton John for Texan Love Song (faggot)
I enjoyed listening to him.
Did he say he felt like smoking a fag?
Did he call one of the players a C’Ser?
He called Kansas City one of the fag capitals of the world.
He groveled. The wokes and PC people are like sharks after blood and will destroy him. The best thing a person can do is not say a thing and go on and let them do what they may.
Here’s a better thread...
Bring a MLB announcer is one of the best jobs in the entire world, and lost that job in a matter of seconds.
Or that Kobe used in an altercation with ref.
“What did he say?”
I thought it was that he prefers to date women, rather than men.
Just keep pounding men down for being men! Sheesh I get so sick of this nonsense to get men to grovel like whimpering fools for fear of loosing their jobs! At some point the men of America need to take a stand and stop this ridiculousness!
Probably the truth
Pulling him in mid broadcast is like an FR Zot.
He’s ruined though unless he visits with gay “leaders” and bows and bends and take sensitivity courses and becomes a prominent gay rights speaker.
