Radio Host Apologizes for Repeatedly Calling Erin Andrews a Bitch by Continuing to Insult Her
Kirk Minihane delivered a rant against Erin Andrews last week in which he repeatedly called her a bitch. Predictably, many people were not totally OK with such behavior.
Minihane attempted to apologize for his words today on WEEI’s The Dennis and Callahan Morning Show. His attempt included further digs at Andrews’ intelligence and talent.
I used a word to reference Erin Andrews that I shouldn’t have used to reference Erin Andrews. I will completely cop to that, I said it, I admit it… I think she stinks at her job. I don’t think she’s 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.
Whoa, hey. No need to bring Perkins into this. That restaurant just can’t buy a break.
To be fair, Minihane’s written apology, posted on the show’s website, showed remarkable restraint by not containing any insults. Perhaps he’s just better in print than on-air — which is a hell of a curse for a talk radio personality.
Hopefully his apology for the sarcastic apology will be better.
Poor Minihane. Step nine is a real challenge.
