Rays Sideline Reporter Emily Austen Got Fired By FOX Sports After Her Appearance On The Barstool Sports Show The Rundown

FOX Sports isn't a fan of jokes.  They fired Tampa Bay Rays hot sideline reporter Emily Austen for insensitive comments she made during an appearance on the Barstool Sports show The Rundown.

She made a few jokes that I guess FOX Sports didn't find funny, via Tampa

In a statement, Steve Tello, the GM/Senior Vice-President of Fox Sports Florida said, "We were made aware that Emily Austen appeared in a social media video unaffiliated with Fox Sports in which she made insensitive and derogatory comments. She was not speaking on behalf of Fox Sports, nor do we condone any of the statements she made in the video. Emily has been advised that her comments were unacceptable, and she is not scheduled to appear on any upcoming Fox Sports Florida or Fox Sports Sun broadcasts."

Something tells me she won't have a very hard time finding a new job.  If anything this will probably catapult her into a better gig that the Rays sideline reporter.  Hell FOX News might hire her.
