Mary Carillo Drops The J-Bomb At The U.S. Open

Wednesday, September 05, 2007

I don't really watch Tennis at all. Sorry, but it's a damn boring Sport to me. Well I'm thinking I should start after two moments during the earlier rounds of the U.S. Open. McEnroe is being accused of talking too much, and Mary Carillo is using questionable language....

I know this PC stuff has gotten beaten to death lately (Jerry Lewis...you're not helping), but when you call an Israeli born player a "Jew" on National television....it's not going to come across well at all. She did so when talking about a win from Shahar Pe'er, and it wasn't that she said it, but HOW she allegedly said it (Paraphrasing Via reader BI)....

"The Jew won today."- MC
No matter how you meant that...it comes across so wrong. She corrected herself later in the broadcast, but the damage had been done. Well I don't know how much damage because apparently no one watches Tennis. Not a single news source has reported on this. It's probably just an honest slip up, but that's a strange choice of words coming from such a big advocate for gay and lesbian rights.

The two have also been talking about Single Moms as well. John McEnroe had this gem at the end of an exchange on Australian Sybille Bammer....


UPDATE: Some folks have emailed in to say that the paraphrasing above is wrong, and that she used the term "Jewish Player", and then corrected that with Israeli. If anyone has the exact quote feel free to pass it on.

I think she actually said, "The Chew won today."

Mary must be a big Deadwood fan.

She picked the wrong city to make that comment in. Get ready for the next overblown Don Imus-type New York controversy.

Saying the "JEW" isn't a big deal, unless of course the israeli player was an israeli arab. If she had said the KIKE won or the Hymie(aka Jesse Jackson refering to NY as Hymie Town). Really who cares.

No, no one will care because she is in the protected class, a female sports announcer.

Thy can get away with a bit more than a washed up old buzzard-lookin white guy.

Maybe if she said "what the FUCK?!?!?" she could be in tepid water.

New Yorkers would have no problem if she said, "The cunt won today."

The fact that nobody's covering it could be due to the fact that it's a horrible misquote. She didn't say "The Jew won today." She said, to paraphrase, that Pe'er was the first Jewish player to reach the quarters/semifinals/etc. And she did apologize and say Israeli about a minute later.

So in short, get your poop in a group before you raise a stink.
