Fox Sports Florida Reporter Emily Austen Banned From Network After Making Anti-Semitic Remarks
A Fox Sports Florida reporter isn’t scheduled to appear on the network after making racially insensitive and anti-Semitic remarks during a live-streamed Barstool Sports show.
In the 35-minute video, Austen said she “didn’t even know that Mexicans were that smart,” while discussing a story about a Texas valedictorian who announced that she’s an undocumented immigrant. Austen added that the “Chinese guy is always the smartest guy in math class,” and that when she “used to talk to Jews in Boca,” they “would complain and b—- about everything.”
Senior Vice President of Fox Sports Florida, Steve Tello said in a statement Friday that the network was aware of Austen’s “insensitive and derogatory comments.”
“She was not speaking on behalf of Fox Sports, nor do we condone any of the statements she made in the video,” Tello said. “Emily has been advised that her comments were unacceptable, and she is not scheduled to appear on any upcoming Fox Sports Florida or Fox Sports Sun broadcasts.”
