Welp… The CBS writer we told you was in hot water for pointing out some pudge on a pom pom girl no longer writes for CBS.
Via NY Daily News:
The CBS Houston blogger who publicly ridiculed an NBA cheerleader for her weight has been fired, according to reports.
CBS Sports Radio confirmed to News 9 in Oklahoma City that a digital content manager had been fired — but it wouldn’t say if it was Anna-Megan Raley, who’s accused of writing last week’s offensive post about Thunder Girl Kelsey Williams.
The article, written under the supposed pen name Claire Crawford, asked readers if Williams is “too chunky” to cheer for the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team.
Crawford pointed out “pudginess” around the blond bombshell’s waist and urged readers to weigh in.
Commenters weren’t amused — most chastised the author for the rude post and called for her termination.
The article, posted Monday morning after the Houston Rockets lost an NBA playoffs game to the Oklahoma City Thunder, was quickly deleted.
CBS hasn’t confirmed whether Williams, whose Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts have been deleted, is indeed the author of the uncouth post.
Do you think they were too hard on her or was she just a mean old bully asking to have her check snatched?
