It was off air, but still ESPN broadcaster Ron Franklin and Jeannine Edwards exchanged some heated words which ended in this exchange:
“Listen to me, sweet baby, let me tell you something,” Franklin reportedly told her.
“Don’t call me sweet baby, I don’t like being talked to like that,” Edwards responded.
Franklin then said, “OK then, listen to me, a–hole.”
After Franklin’s remarks were reported to management, he was pulled from the Fiesta Bowl broadcast on Saturday.
