Broadcaster Thom Brennaman With the Homophobic Slur on the Hot Mic …. and It Might Have Cost Him His Job (Video)

UPDATE: Brennaman did issue an policy during the live broadcast. He has also left the booth as well.

A big yikes here.

Cincinnati Reds local broadcaster Thom Brennaman had the hot mic during The Reds pregame show Wednesday Night, and it has landed him in scolding hot water.

Via MLB insider Jeff Passan, Brennaman is currently working the second game of the doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals, in which he may have referred to the city, as ‘one of the fag capitals of the world.’

Not even joking here.

And for the baseball/football play-by-play announcer, we will likely see some sort of apology or dismissal in the near future regarding that quote.

It may be coming for us after this doubleheader tonight or sometime later this week.
