POLL: Hot Mic catches sportscaster’s slur during MLB game

Cincinnati Reds announce suspension of broadcaster Thom Brennaman

Cincinnati Reds announcer Thom Brennaman was pulled off air during a game after being caught using a homophobic slur.

Brennaman was broadcasting a double-header between the Reds and Royals Wednesday when he was overheard on a hot mic referring to a city as “one of the f** capitals of the world.”

The comments quickly went viral and then Brennaman tried to issue an apology pleading for forgiveness — as he was also calling a home run by a Reds player at the same time.

He then turned over the broadcast to a colleague and left the booth. The Reds announced his immediate suspension.

Do you think Brennaman should be fired?
