Reds Announcer Thom Brennaman Appears To Get Caught Using Homophobic Slur On Hot Mic

Reds announcer Thom Brennaman is currently in hot water after appearing to have used a homophobic slur live on air before the team’s game against Kansas

In videos shared on social media, Brennaman could be heard talking about “One of the f** capitals of the world,” before previewing today’s Royals-Reds doubleheader.

Brennaman continued calling the game after the video of him using the homophobic slur made its way around the Internet.

Thom, the son of longtime Reds announcer Marty Brennaman, is likely to lose his job as fans are calling for his firing.
