Oakland A’s Fire Broadcaster Glen Kuiper After Using N-Word On-Air During Game

The Oakland Athletics fired play-by-play broadcaster Glen Kuiper on Monday after he said a racial slur while on-air.  The incident occurred during a May 5 contest between the A’s and Kansas City Royals, where Kuiper was attempting to explain the activities he and color commentator Dallas Braden did before the game in Kansas City.  “We had a phenomenal day. (N-word) league museum. And Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque.”

Yeah, there was no way the A’s could’ve kept him on the job. I mean that wasn’t no mere slip of the tongue.
