One guess… right! Keith Olbermann, everybody’s favorite nasty Lefty. Did you know he was back at ESPN? Me, neither:
Keith Olbermann has been taken off his ESPN show for the rest of the week after making insulting comments about Penn State students on Twitter. On Monday, a Penn State alum tweeted to Olbermann the phrase “We Are!” and a link to an article about students raising more than $13 million to fight pediatric cancer. Olbermann replied “…Pitiful.”
Olbermann, who often spars with commenters on Twitter, then refused to back down, saying he was referring to Penn State students in general and not the fundraising. On Tuesday, ESPN said in a statement that “it was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN. We have discussed it with Keith, who recognizes he was wrong.”
Olbermann also apologized on Twitter, saying, “I was stupid and childish and way less mature than the students there who did such a great fundraising job.”
Talk about a guy who’s long past his sell-by date. He hasn’t been either funny or entertaining since the Dan Patrick days.
