Earlier on the CBS pregame show, Doug Gottlieb created a stir in the online world when he claimed to be the "white man's perspective" in the studio. He later backtracked on his Twitter account, saying it was a joke. That didn't stop ESPN's Mark May from speaking his mind, however.
It's rare for media members to call out their own colleagues, much less call for them to be fired. But that's exactly what May did:
After Doug Gottlieb's ignorant comment on CBS he should be canned— Mark May (@mark_may) March 29, 2013
That type of comment is ment for a bar not a national stage.Nice job Gottlieb I hope all the kids 12 and under didn't hear it !— Mark May (@mark_may) March 29, 2013
Pretty harsh words, and it will be interesting to see how this episode plays out over the next couple days. Of course, since it's still Mark May, he couldn't end this little outburst without a bizarre non-sequiter:
