During halftime of the early NFL games yesterday, Fox’s Terry Bradshaw made the comment that Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was running like he was chasing a bucket of chicken. During the highlight, you can hear Bradshaw say
“Look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day.”
While the comment sounds extremely racist, those within the Fox NFL studios claim Bradshaw was not trying to be racist but was in fact taking a shot at analyst Jimmy Johnson and his love of fried chicken. TMZ.com, reports that the entire crew is constantly picking on Johnson for his love of fried chicken and that is where the comment came from during yesterday’s highlights.
While Bradshaw probably thought he was picking on Johnson, the comments came off as racist.
