Sexist comments about Katherine Webb from ESPN sports analyst Brent Musburger

On Jan. 7, the Twitter-verse exploded when Musburger singled out Webb, 23, who’s the current Miss Alabama as well as University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron‘s girlfriend, in the stands at the BCS Champion Game between the Crimson Tide and Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish.

His comments were very sexist and helped give Katherine Webb 15 minutes of fame: His comments below:

“Well, I tell you, you quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women! What a beautiful woman!,” marveled Musburger as ESPN’s cameras panned toward Webb. “So if you’re a youngster at Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops.”

Backlash to his remarks prompted ESPN to issue an apology, saying: “We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”
