Cris Collinsworth was roasted by social media after his comment during the Ravens and Steelers game.

Cris Collinsworth is pretty upset with himself after yesterday’s broadcast where he made a comment that many thought was insensitive towards women.

Leading up to the Steelers and Ravens game, Collinsworth met two female fans that were really knowledgeable about the game of football, leading up to the game. He made this comment during the broadcast.

“They had really specific questions about the game,” Collinsworth said of the women. “And I’m like, ‘Wow.’ You’re just blown away about how strong the fans are here in this town.”

Well, a lot of people on the internet thought it was sexist and it was met with big time backlash. I guess many took it as if he was calling females incapable of knowing the game. I am not sure but he did issue an apology for the comments.

“Today on our broadcast I made reference to a couple of women that I met in Pittsburgh who so impressed me with their football knowledge that I wanted to tell their story on the air,” Cris said. “I know the way I phrased it insulted many. I’m so sorry.”

“What I intended as a compliment to the fans of Pittsburgh, became an insult. I’m sick about insulting any fan, but especially female fans and journalists.”

“I know first hand how much harder they have to work than any of us in this industry. I was wrong and I deeply apologize.”

What do you think? Was it wrong?
