Happy holidays, WNBA!
Bruce Jacobs of WTMM (104.5 FM) called two WNBA teams the “Los Angeles Lesbians” and the “Phoenix Dyke-ury” during Tuesday’s broadcast.
Jacobs apologized for 10 minutes on air – “My comments yesterday were ridiculous, stupid and amateurish” – but the damage was done. Someone created a Facebook page: “Get ESPN Radio’s Bruce Jacobs OFF of the Air for Gay Slurs.” When the Times-Union asked Jacobs if he should be fired, he said no. Obviously.
