ESPN Radio host Colin Cowherd was already on his way out the door, but Friday, the "Worldwide Leader in Sports" decided to make his exit a bit more swift.
ESPN announced Cowherd would no longer appear on air after making what many people considered to be disparaging remarks about Dominicans.
"The Marlins put a general manager in their dugout, people freaked out. Like, 'Whoa!' It's baseball. You don't think a general manager can manage? Like it's impossible? The game is too complex? I've never bought into that, 'baseball's too complex.' Really? A third of the sport is from the Dominican Republic," Cowherd said on his ESPN program.
