Fox Sports Issues Apology For Chael Sonnen’s Insensitive Remarks About Domestic Violence

The FOX sports news desk got their very own piece of Chael Sonnen recently while having the brash UFC fighter on their analyst panel.

MMA fans the world over are used to the mouth of Sonnen and his sometimes controversial remarks, but those same remarks on the big stage of major media isn’t really accepted.

Check out what Sonnen said while on FOX Sports Live:

“Look, Floyd (Mayweather) needs to keep doing what he’s doing, which is fighting complete tomato cans that we’ve never heard of before. I’ve never seen anybody in the history of America get so rich and so famous off of having complete wimps throwing punch at their faces. I know what you’re saying. You’re saying, ‘Well, it’s happened before, what about Rihanna?’ … Too soon? Was it too soon?”

FOX Sports quickly came out with an apology:

“FOX Sports regrets the comments Chael Sonnen made during last night’s edition of FOX Sports Live. They were an inappropriate attempt at humor that Sonnen acknowledges shouldn’t have been made and he apologizes to anyone who may have been offended by his remarks.”

In this day and age are people just too sensitive or was Sonnen out of line?

    Did she then write a song about how she likes to get abused? S&M right? Sonnen didn’t go to far, I absolutely detest jokes about domestic violence but I don’t think he went to far. I think he was a bit on the money actually.

    What do you expect – the guy is a right wing extremist and a convicted felon. He’s total scum.

    People are far to sensitive and quick to jump on the “That’s offensive” bandwagon. Get over yourselves and move on. The point of comedy is to say funny things and that right there was funny.
