ESPN’s Peter Burns Makes Joke About Benjamin Watson’s Wife On Live TV And Things Got Awkward Fast

Benjamin Watson didn’t seem to appreciate Peter Burns cracking jokes about his wife.

During halftime of the Vanderbilt-Florida game on the SEC Network the crew was talking about suits which led Burns to crack a joke about getting a text from Watson’s wife.

Watson: “As long as I get a text from my wife that says I look good, send me the text, baby.

Burns: “That’s not the text she sent me”

Watson appeared upset about the joke, and the two hosts were not seated when the halftime show returned from a commercial break.

Here’s how fans reacted to Burns’ joke.

Eventually, Burns tweeted out a photo with Watson, who did not look happy.
