A Prominent Sportswriter Said Fox News Hosts Dress Like ‘Hookers,’ And Twitter Let Him Have It

Jeff Pearlman is the author of a few great sports books, and generally well-liked in sports media. But on Tuesday, he proved that no matter who you are, it’s never a good idea as a man to tell women how to dress. And it’s an even worse idea to shame them by equating them with “hookers.”

The above screen-captured tweet was deleted, but Pearlman’s follow-ups were not, and even though his heart might be in the right place, he still acts like a shining white knight for an issue that his comments are only helping to reinforce: that the rules about women’s bodies and how they display them are ultimately up to men.
