“Words are free. It’s how you use, that may cost you.”— someone once said. And, former NHL star and NBC hockey analyst, Jeremy Roenick definitely learned a similar lesson in December 2020 when he “went too far” in entertaining his audience.
As a guest on Barstool Sports’ Spittin’ Chiclets podcast, he made some questionable comments about his co-workers, including Kathryn Tappen. And as a result, he was suspended “indefinitely” without pay by NBC Sports.
Jeremy had joked about having a threesome with Kathryn (and his wife). He later officially apologized for his “insensitive” comments.
Followed by this, Kathryn’s too gave her statements. Reproofing Jeremy’s message over video-tweet, she had said:
“While Jeremy and I continue to be good friends, what he said was unacceptable, especially among workplace colleagues. I do not condone his comments.”
