Kelly Tilghman Sorry For Suggesting Golfers Lynch Tiger

by at . Comments

Better choices of words have been made.

Golf Channel announcer Kelly Tilghman is facing heavy criticism for saying that the world's up-and-coming golfers should "lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley" during a Friday broadcast of the PGA Tour's opening event of 2008.

Presumably, she meant that in a figurative sense, since Tiger Woods wins every tournament and is thus the bane of every other golfer's existence.

But still, not the smartest move by Kelly Tilghman, a 1991 Duke graduate and former college golf standout who made history in becoming the sport's first full-time female TV announcer. People are asking: Should she be fired over this?

Kelly Tilghman has since apologized to Tiger Woods publicly and personally.

Upset, the announcer said that "I used some poorly chosen words... "I have known Tiger Woods for 12 years and I have apologized directly to him."

Dumb as it was, maybe this incident can simply blow over. Just don't comment on the fake Elin Nordegren nude pics, Kelly. Take our advice on this one.

Lol, yeah and all I hear everyday is blacks calling each other n---a..... It has become some cool tough phrase they use to boost their ego's....... So they use a degrading word to each other everyday..... But if a non black says it to em it becomes offensive and racist?..... That is ridiculous, they use their race to their benefit when they can....... Granted this is not all but a large majority...... She wasn't tryin to be offensive and lynching applied to all races .......seems so many organizations are just waiting for something or someone to say something and then jump all over their shit

If she had only said "Some of the guys should take that other guy in an alley and lynch him", nobody could have said 'boo'. But she said what she said, and big deal. Blacks are not the only ones ever lynched, So were a lot of WHITE union activists back a skilled laborer was lucky to get a dollar a day. Also lynched were WHITE murderers and horse theives. Get over it, people. Blacks are not special. Don't be so fricken' touchy.

Kelly Tilghman should be fired, two weeks suspension is a joke and was nothing but a vacation for her. She is pure scum of the earth, that feels she can say whatever she wants and nothing will happen. Recently a black TV star lost his job for calling a fellow co-worker a "faggot", but she gets a two-week suspension, HUH???

Guess the insidious ones are trying to shake Woods off his game. Not for one minute do I believe that this vile utterance was not calculated to have some deep psychological effect on him.

Hey, to the idiot that said that Tiger is only have black: Tiger is actually only a quarter black. But that is really irrelavent. A violent, racist comment went out to millions of people. Not saying she should be fired, but she better not get a promotion during her review :)
