Bad Look: Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Cracking Jokes And Laughing Before Jose Fernandez Press Conference (Video)
The sports world woke up to some absolute tragic news, as it was announced that 24-year-old Miami Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez was tragically killed during a boating accident in Miami Beach early Sunday morning.
To make things that much worse, ESPN went live to a coast guard press conference to announce the death of Jose Fernandez and two other occupants, but what they got was comedy central hour as they started cracking jokes and laughing before finally deciding to get serious.
While I’m sure they didn’t mean any harm, it wasn’t a good look at all, especially for friends and family who were probably tuned in and watching.
Why was the Coast Guard laughing during the interview? Dont do that dont disrespect Jose Fernandez

I’m not a fan of this US Coast Guard laughing on live tv about Jose Hernandez death. Let’s be professional here. — The Tilly (@BoTilly) September 25, 2016
The fact the coast guard was laughing during the presser is sickening. A very unprofessional way to deal with tragedy.
