ESPN has posted an apology for it’s rather odd reporting on the showering habits of out NFL-er Michael Sams.
‘ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report,’ the network said in a statement Wednesday (27 August).
‘Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.’
In the report it is now apologizing for, reporter Josina Anderson said: ‘Another Rams defensive player told me that “Sam is respecting our space.” And that, from his perspective, he seems to think that Michael Sam is kind of waiting to take a shower, as not to make his teammates feel uncomfortable.’
Rams defensive end Chris Long sent out this tweet after the segment aired: ‘Dear ESPN, everyone but you is over it.’
