Golf Channel anchor Tilghman suspended for racial joke

0

The Golf Channel last announced that it suspended its lead anchor Kelly Tilghman for two weeks after comments she made over a week ago. She was joking with analyst Nick Faldo 1/4 after the second round of the Mercedes-Benz Championship when she said one way for young players to deal with the challenge Tiger Woods brings to the table would be to "lynch him in a back alley." She’s apologized and Woods has accepted it. The Golf Channel said the statement was "hurtful and grossly inappropriate."
