Reds Announcer Thom Brennaman Awkwardly Makes Home Run Call While In The Middle Of Apology For Using Homophobic Slur Live On-Air

Thom Brennaman’s announcing career is likely over and his final home run call is one for the books.

Before tonight’s Reds-Royals game, Brennaman was caught using a homophobic slur on a hot mic after a commercial break.

Brennaman would later go on to apologize for using the slur while still calling the game which led to an awkward moment where he was forced to make a home run call in the middle of his statement.

Update: Brennaman has been suspended by the Reds.
