Last week we brought you the story of UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and his faux motorboating controversy. Yahoo! Sports blogger/columnist Maggie Hendricks was one of several writers to hammer Jackson for his sordid history of inappropriate treament towards female journalists.
Over the weekend, it was Hendricks who was attacked. Following her criticism of Jackson, UFC announcer Joe Rogan went online and made some comments about Hendricks that were in incredibly poor taste. For instance, Rogan actually referred to Hendricks as being “cunty,” whatever the hell that means.
In addition to pointing out that Rampage Jackson is NOT A FUCKING DENTIST, Rogan added that even though the fighter occassionly gets “out of line,” that’s just “part of his charm.” Rogan also dropped two c-word bombs on Hendricks and referred to her as “ugly.” Classy! (even for a guy from Fear Factor.)
Rogan’s comments were so over the top that UFC president Dana White was offended. Wow! I didn’t even know that was possible. White made Rogan apologize to Hendricks.
Rogan returned to the same same chatroom and wrote:
“Never did I imagine that so many people would get their panties in a bunch about the use of the word “c*nty” to describe a female blogger, but in this “gotcha” age of online “journalism” we find ourselves in any controversy that can be expolited to fill headlines…”
Jesus, man! Worst…apology…ever.
