Mike Milbury, an analyst for NBC Sports, has been receiving backlash for a comment made last night while on air.
While talking about the players’ bubble life he said : “not even any women here to disrupt their concentration.”
He immediately got a lot of criticism for the exchange and has gained a lot of media attention regarding the incident that some have been calling sexist.
Milbury apologized the next day regarding the incident, he had this to say : “I sincerely apologize for making the comment. It was not my intention to disrespect anyone. I was trying to be irreverent and took it a step too far. It was a regrettable mistake that I take seriously.”
The NHL released their statement on the incident today, they had this to say “The National Hockey League condemns the insensitive and insulting comment that Mike Milbury made during last night’s broadcast and we have communicated our feelings to NBC. The comment did not reflect the NHL’s values and commitment to making our game more inclusive and welcoming to all.”
