ESPN Suspends Olbermann After Twitter Rants
Keith Olbermann responded with a one-word Tweet, “pitiful”, after Penn State announced raising more than $13 million for pediatric cancer research.
Many took Olbermann’s tweet to mean that he thought the fundraiser itself was pitiful. Olbermann clarified that he thinks Penn State students are pitiful.
ESPN released this statement:
“We are aware of the exchange Keith Olbermann had on Twitter last night regarding Penn State. It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN. We have discussed it with Keith, who recognizes he was wrong. ESPN and Keith have agreed that he will not host his show for the remainder of this week and will return on Monday.”
