Now it's Tony Kornheiser who has put his foot in his mouth.
The co-host of ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" – known as much for his sarcastic jokes as his sports talk – turned his commentary to ESPN colleague Hannah Storm's outfit on his radio show last week.
According to The Sporting News, Kornheiser called a Storm outfit "horrifying" and described its fit on her as "like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body."
Kornheiser later apologized, saying, "I'm a sarcastic, subversive guy ... I'm a troll, look at me. I have no right to insult what anybody looks like or what anybody wears."
But the damage had been done. Today, ESPN announced Kornheiser's been suspended temporarily.
What do you think? Did the penalty fit the crime?
