A Fox Sports Sideline Reporter Got Really Racist On A Since-Deleted Facebook Live Show

06.10.16 3 years ago 18 Comments

Emily Austen of Fox Sports Florida is getting a bit of a timeout from work after appearing as a guest on a Facebook Live video by Barstool Sports and saying some pretty inflammatory things. She managed to be offensive about Mexicans, Asians, and Jews in the span of just a few minutes, after ensuring that she never gets an interview with Kevin Love again.

The show, where they run down a bunch of viral topics, was deleted from Facebook after it aired, but it was saved by someone on the Barstool subreddit. Barstool’s founder, El Presidente, claimed that someone accidentally deleted the footage before they could edit and air the saved version, but you can make your own judgment as to why a video where a TV personality complains about Jews being cheap might get deleted. Of course, since this is the internet, everything lasts forever.

Just after the show begins properly, at around 11 minutes in, Austen calls Love “a little bitch” multiple times, which is quite a thing to say when you’re a sideline reporter who covers the Orlando Magic and could actually be in the same room with him at some point in the future.

At the 24:25 mark, she responds to the valedictorian student who tweeted that she’s an undocumented immigrant by saying, “I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart.”
