KANSAS CITY NEWSIE JACK HARRY'S 'GAYHAWKS' HOT MESS AFTERMATH!!!
Previously . . . We talked about the so-called "gayhawk" explanation . . .
Now let's just take a quick look at how the rest of the sports world witnessed the hot mess . . .
Sports Illustrated: Kansas City station stands behind Jack Harry after “Gayhawks” controversy
Deadspin: Kansas City Sportscaster Maintains He Didn't Call KU The "Gayhawks"
Huff Post: Jack Harry, Kansas City Broadcaster, Denies 'Gayhawks' On-Air Gaffe
The Advocate . . . WATCH: Sportscaster Denies Calling Kansas Jayhawks 'Gayhawks'
The media lesson here is that Jack Harry getting out ahead of complaints might have elicited more attention for the story but quickly diffused reactionary rage. Instead, the "gayhawk" debate people to rant against political correctness rather than taking aim at the veteran broadcaster.
