ESPN has suspended Pardon The Interruption co-host Tony Kornheiser on Tuesday for comments he made last week regarding SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm's wardrobe, sportingnews.com reports.
The report cites several media reports on the suspension, which was described by an ESPN spokesperson only as "for some time."
Kornheiser's remarks, which he made on his radio show, were posted on SunSentinel.com:
"Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today. She's got on red go-go boots and a Catholic-school plaid skirt. Way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now. She's got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body. I know she's very good, and I'm not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, So I won't. But Hannah Storm, Come on now! Stop! What are you doing? She's what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point.”
He later apologized, calling himself a "troll" and saying he "has no right to insult what anybody looks like or what anybody wears."
