There are a lot of people that are upset at Houston Texans owner Cal McNair.
Bally Sports’ Michael Silver reported on Tuesday that McNair made an anti-Asian statement while addressing a crowd of more than 100 people alongside his wife Hannah at the Houston Texans Foundation Charity Golf Classic in May:
McNair was in the process of addressing more than 100 attendees at the Houston Texans Foundation Charity Golf Classic at River Oaks Country Club when he told the crowd, “I’m sorry that we couldn’t get together last year, because of the China Virus.” Audience members were said to be completely stunned by his actions as he and his wife, Hannah, looked on smirking.
“Everyone gasped,” one witness said, “especially the people directly across from him. He and Hannah seemed to think it was hilarious. It was dead silent.”
Bally Sports woud soon get a ststement via a Texans spokesperson Tuesday:
“My comments at the event last May included an inappropriate choice of words,” McNair said in the statement. “I immediately apologized to people who approached me then and I apologize again now. I know how important it is to choose my words carefully. I would never want to offend anyone.”
The revelation about McNair’s comment comes at a time where Jon Gruden had to step down from his Raiders head coaching position after emails surfaced showing his racist, homophobic and misogynist content.
The emails, sent by Gruden during his time as an ESPN commentator to then-Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen, were uncovered as part of an investigation into a workplace misconduct scandal.
The scandal that took down Gruden also got ESPN’s Adam Schefter in trouble that showed shady journalism practices.
The league none of the other emails have anything substantial in them regarding other owners or coaches in the league. Not a single soul believes that.
