After calling Fox Sports' Erin Andrews a "gutless b**ch" last week, Boston sports radio host Kirk Minihane apologized for his language during his broadcast Wednesday morning -- then proceeded to berate Andrews one more time.
"I used a word to reference Erin Andrews that I shouldn’t have used to reference Erin Andrews,” Minihane said in a recording transcribed by The Boston Globe. “I will completely cop to that. I said it, I admit it, that was a mistake. I just feel like it was the wrong time to use it."Apology out of the way, Minihane attempted to justify the original statement with this questionable follow-up (emphasis added):
I will say this. I think she stinks at her job. I don’t think she’s very smart, I don’t think she comes across as very smart. I think Fox only hired her because she’s good-looking. I think if she weighed 15 pounds more she’d be a waitress at Perkins. That’s what I believe.
Last week, Minihane was widely rebuked for attacking Andrews over what he perceived as a soft question directed at St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright. Wainwright had been accused of throwing Derek Jeter a couple easy pitches during the 2014 All-Star Game; he denied doing so.
Andrews' follow-up question, "Don't you just love social media?", alluded to Twitter's role in stoking the controversy -- a question Minihane took issue with as being too easy, prompting this rant: (Warning: Adult language follows.)
What a bitch! I hate her! What a gutless bitch! Seriously, go away. Drop dead. I mean, seriously what the hell is wrong with her? First of all, follow up. Second of all, the guy admitted he did it. He admitted it. He told reporters he threw a couple of pipe bombs. How is that social media’s fault? I hate her. I seriously hate her so much. Social media is the reason she has a big house! Shut up. Shut up. I shouldn’t call her a bitch, I’m sure she’s a nice person.”
