Kuiper apologized soon after, sort of, at the start of the sixth inning but the damage was already done, likely ending his career. So it goes.
Oakland Athletics announcer Glen Kuiper issued an apology Friday for dropping the N-word with a “hard R” during a live broadcast of the team’s road victory over the Kansas City Royals.
Kuiper, 59, was trying to say “Negro Leagues Baseball Museum” when the slip-up happened. His broadcast partner, Dallas Braden, didn’t seem to catch the apparent racial slur.
Braden, 39, kept his eyes closed while Kuiper explained how they visited the Negro League Museum and Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque earlier in the day.
Kuiper issued an apology later in the broadcast, saying he didn’t mean to say what he said.
“A little bit earlier in the show, I said something that didn’t come out quite the way I wanted it to,” Kuiper said. “I just wanted to apologize if it sounded different than I meant it to be said… I just wanted to apologize for that.”
Kuiper’s rather lacklustre apology.
