An NFL announcer just took a cruel and cheap shot at Whoopi Goldberg -- live during a Detroit Lions football game.

Play video

During the first quarter of the Lions game today, the announcer, Chris Myers was talking about a player who was on the Pittsburgh Steelers last season but now plays for Detroit. He said, "Going from two Super Bowls in Pittsburgh to the winless Detroit team -- that's like going from dating Beyonce to Whoopi Goldberg."

Here we go again. Why should this guy be fired for making a joke that most people would agree with. If he had said "like going from Angelina Jolie to Rosie O'Donnel there would be nothing said. But becuase it was Whoopie Goldberg . . . Well, you get my drift. Calling Al Sharpton!

I don't care what color Whoopie is, she's FUGLY. She is the polar opposite to Halle Berry or Lark Vorhees.

And I bet this dude is sitting behind the mic lookin like Who Done it & Why. But of course women are the only ones made to chase perfection in this society. But aside from that, I think the joke he made is something people easily say in everyday conversation but someone in his position needs to really know that HELLO there is real person behind that name. Whether she can handle the criticism or not does not make it right. Imagine her sittin home chillin minding her own business watching the game and to hear some bs like that. How can anyone actually side w/ that douchebag? What exactly is the argument??? "Well..she shouldn't, uh, look the way she does." Wtf

Only marry foreign women    

If the sportscaster is black female, is funny - keep job; if black man, well watch yourself, but funny - keep job; if white woman - white women not that funny - keep job; and if white male, it is an outrage - fire the racist, sexist.

just because whoopie goldburg has not had her face and body all cut up does not make her lesser of a human.
this is one reason why i dont give my time energy or money into sports.... meatheads like that run the show with iq's of numero 26
whoopie has done some very deep and beautiful roles that she should be proud of, for helping enlighten the rest of humanity.
fame is cruel . well, the people mocking dont even have a clue about the nature of residual income. and i am sure evn beyonce is hurt about this comment !!! ^.^

No surprise here at the comments. In the USA even among "afro americans" the light-skinned and half and 3/4 whites are thought of as beautiful; the dark to very dark skinned are "slave black" and ugly! Unfortunate. Amongst real black conscious people, the very dark skinned with black-african features are the true beauties!
