Brent Musburger Tweet Defending NFL Violence Causes Immediate Backlash

Brent Musburger, a man who has avoided apologizing to 1968 Olympic heroes John Carlos and Tommie Smith for calling them “black-skinned storm troopers” is once again popping off and causing a negative reaction.

This time, Musburger received negative attention after he bizarrely called out “snowflakes” who were speaking out about violence. He added in a comment about Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders bringing sex appeal to the game, while telling everyone to “deal with it.”

It’s hard to say what a random comment like this stems from, but you would have to believe it has to do with the Monday Night Football clash between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, which saw Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier lose feeling in his lower body, and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety George Iloka being suspended for a helmet-to-helmet blows.

It seems like Musburger is upset that people don’t want to see head-hunting in the NFL, so he fired off this gem.

This is the same Brent Musburger who defended Joe Mixon on a national television for striking a woman.

As you would expect, at a time of increasing awareness on the impact of head trauma and CTE in football, people did not respond well to Musburger’s tweet.

It’s been a rough night on the Twitter machine for Mr. Musburger. He’s in for a surprise when he wakes up and looks at his mentions.
