Report: FOX Sports Fired Craig James for Homophobic Comments
Earlier this month, we learned that new FOX Sports commentator had been mysteriously fired. TMZ has learned the real reason that James was let go, and it’s fairly odd. Usually when a large corporation decides to hire a new employee, there is some sort of background check involved, but somehow someone at the FOX Sports human resources department dropped the ball on this one.
Apparrently during a 2012 debate, James commented that being gay was a choice and that gay people “would answer to the Lord for their actions.” One of the big wigs at Fox Sports who chose to remain unnamed said:
“We just asked ourselves how Craig’s statements would play in our human resources department.”
Either way, James is without a job, and now that his comments are nationally known, it’s doubtful anyone would want to pick him up.
