Stupid PC Gets ESPN Broadcaster Fired
Doug Adler was doing play-by-play commentary for Williams' second-round match against Stefanie Voegele, saying Williams was playing more aggressively after Voegele missed serves. After Voegele faulted on a serve, Adler described Venus as moving in and charging with a guerrilla effect. Of course the PC police heard "gorilla effect." Even though the words gorilla and guerrilla are pronounced exactly the same the PC police assumed that Adler was comparing Venus to a gorilla instead of playing with aggressive guerilla tactics. And, the guy lost his job over it! Tennis experts use the term “guerrilla tennis” to describe aggressive play often. Airhead Twitter freaks launched a campaign against the broadcaster and ESPN caved.What a bunch of assholes - and I don't mean that in the nice way!
