ESPN personality Tony Kornheiser was suspended for two weeks, RadarOnline.com has learned, after he recently made controversial remarks about fellow broadcaster Hannah Storm during his local radio show in Washington, D.C.
Kornheiser, who was suspended Monday, said Storm appeared on SportsCenter “in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today. She’s got on red go-go boots and a Catholic school plaid skirt … way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now. (She’s 47, for the record.)
“She’s got on her typically very, very tight shirt,” he said. “She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body — she’s what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point.”
Kornheiser said he has since apologized in private to Storm.
Kornheiser’s comments were “entirely inappropriate,” ESPN exec John Skipper said in a statement. “Hurtful and personal comments such as these are not acceptable and have significant consequences.”
