Emily Austen, a Fox Sports Florida sideline reporter, is out of a job now. She made several derogatory comments on Barstool Sports’ Rundown.
Austen mainly covers the Rays and Magic.
The following are some of the comments leading to her firing:
On Kevin Love missing Game 3 due to a concussion: “I think Kevin Love is a little bitch. … I’m just saying, in general, he’s a little bitch because even when he doesn’t have concussion. I’m not saying he’s a little bitch because he didn’t play because he had a concussion. Because he can’t play. I’m just not a fan, and he’s such a diva.”
On a high school valedictorian who was criticized for bragging on Twitter about being an undocumented immigrant: “I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart… That’s f— up. I didn’t mean it like that. You see, you guys know that the Chinese guy is always the smartest guy in math class.”
On dealing with Jewish people as a server in Boca Raton, Fla.: “The way I used to talk to the Jews in Boca… I just didn’t care. They would complain and bitch about everything. I gave a guy, delivered his beer, and he was complaining to me that there was too much head. I knew that he was a stingy a—hole, and he wasn’t going to give me a tip.”
“We were made aware that Emily Austen appeared in a social media video unaffiliated with FOX Sports in which she made insensitive and derogatory comments. She was not speaking on behalf of FOX Sports, nor do we condone any of the statements she made in the video. Emily has been advised that her comments were unacceptable, and she is not scheduled to appear on any upcoming FOX Sports Florida or FOX Sports Sun broadcasts.”
