ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F/BOSTON morning "DENNIS AND CALLAHAN" sidekick KIRK MINIHANE has apologized for calling FOX SPORTS' ERIN ANDREWS a "gutless bitch" for her questioning of ST LOUIS CARDINALS pitcher ADAM WAINWRIGHT during MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL's ALL-STAR GAME WEDNESDAY night (7/15).
MINIHANE ripped ANDREWS for following up WAINWRIGHT's apology for saying he'd deliberately served up easy pitches for DEREK JETER to hit in the first inning by sarcastically saying, "Don’t you love social media?" and said, "I hate her! what a gutless bitch! 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 admit he told reporters he threw a couple of pipe bombs. How is that social media’s fault? I hate her. Don’t you love social media? Yeah, social media is ... shut up. shut up. i’m sure she’s a nice person, but she’s … she’s probably a bitch. I hate her."
MINIHANE's apology read, "This morning on the radio I used a series of words to describe ERIN ANDREWS' work at the ALL-STAR GAME. My choice of words was wrong; I was wrong to have used them. To all whom I offended -- particularly Ms. ANDREWS -- I apologize. There is no place for what was said. It was immature and completely uncalled for. I am often critical of media members and their work and recognize here that I've made the kind of mistake I would call out if it was done by another sportscaster or writer. Again, to all involved, I'm very sorry."
