Jemele Hill Scorches ‘A–hole’ Radio Host’s Sexist Maria Taylor Comment On Twitter (TWEET)
ESPN’s Maria Taylor made her Monday Night Football debut this week, and it appears one guy had an issue with it. Taylor, mostly known for her college football and NBA coverage, was part of the Monday Night Football team for the New York Giants vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game. She was on the call with Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit.
During the game, Chicago-based radio Dan McNeil thought it would be a good idea to make a sexist comment about Taylor’s outfit.
“NFL sideline reporter or a host for the AVN (Adult Video News) annual awards presentation?” Dan McNeil tweeted and later deleted.
Taylor clapped back in classy fashion:
Former ESPN host Jemele Hill was among those who ripped McNeil for his comment as well.
“Just another example of what women have to go through in this business. Huge accomplishment for Maria to be part of the MNF team tonight and here comes an asshole trying to undermine a big moment in her career,” she wrote.
