Emily Austen apologizes for racist comments that led to FOX Sports dismissal

Earlier this week, Emily Austen spewed a racist rant that led to FOX Sports cutting ties with her.

Since her firing, Austen, who served as a sideline reporter for the Orlando Magic and Tampa Bay Rays, has remained silent. However, on Sunday, she took to social media in an attempt to save face.

Judging by the responses to her tweet, people aren’t going to forgive her very easily.

Austen still has a long way to go before she will be trusted with a live microphone in front of her again, and rightfully so.
