Terry Bradshaw is under fire for what he said to Erin Andrews during the Buccaneers-Eagles Thursday Night Football Pregame show. The football analyst told Andrews, after she had just finished a interview with Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White, that “You got your cowboy boots on. And your shirt. You’re lookin’ good. That was ni- I enjoyed that interview.”
The compliment seemed a little strange and to offer some context, according to a source, “The setting of the interview was inside a barn (White owns horses) and Andrews wore an outfit that fit the theme.”
Let’s just say that Twitter is not happy about the creepy compliment. Here are some reactions.
Since the footage aired, neither Terry nor Erin have commented on the strange compliment and social media is wondering if the football analyst will receive some backlash. They are definitely getting ready to cancel him.
Terry Bradshaw is a former player for the Pittsburgh Steelers. During his time as a football player, he won four Superbowl games and took his team to eight AFC Central championships. Since retiring from the game, Terry has been a football analyst for the NFL and even tried a career in acting.
The former athlete is famous for his roles in movies such as Failure to Launch and Father Figures where he plays the quintessential funny dad character.
Some Twitter users are coming to Terry’s defense and saying that he only complimented her outfit, nothing more. One user tweeted, “All the woke snowflakes are upset Terry Bradshaw complimented Erin Andrews about her look. These turds are idiots!”
Another user pointed out that Terry’s comment is not as bad as a 2003 interview with player Joe Namath. The football legend, who was drunk at the time, tried to kiss ESPN reporter Suzy Kolber. The reporter was not pleased with the potential activity.
It’s not just Terry Bradshaw who is being criticized. Many big names in sports are being shamed for their recent actions.
Three days before former football player Terry Bradshaw’s comment, Raiders coach Jon Gruden resigned from his position. The move came after some harmful emails surfaced that showed Gruden exchanging naked pictures of the Washington Football team’s cheerleaders with other friends, including former WFT executive Bruce Allen back in 2018.
Gruden’s emails, which started back in 2011, also contained homophobic and misogynistic comments about other players and certain celebrities. According to the emails, Gruden openly mocked the first openly gay NFL player after he was drafted, didn’t support women in the NFL and used female anatomy terms as slurs.
He also said that players who protested the National Anthem should be released from the NFL.
Jon Gruden has since apologized for his emails and said, “I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction,” Gruden said in a statement released by the team. “Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.”
Last year, Cris Collinsworth from NBC also got criticized by Twitter for a comment he made towards female fans of the Pittsburg Steelers.
“Everybody’s a fan,” he said during the December 2020 broadcast. “In particular, the ladies that I met. They have really specific questions about the game, and I’m like, ‘Wow.’ You’re just blown away by how strong the fans are here in this town.”
Collinsworth apologized after and said that he should have phrased his words differently without hurting others.
