As a follow-up to what I reported earlier, Dana Jacobson was a guest roaster at an Atlantic City, NJ ESPN event for the Mike & Mike show on the 12th. She was supposed to be offering a comedic “roast” of show hosts Mike Golic and Mike Greenburg, but instead offered a profanity laced, drunken rant when it came her turn at the dais during which she blurted out “F**k Jesus.”
Well, it looks like the folks at ESPN weren’t amused because Jacobson has been suspended for her outrageous comments.ESPN benches Jacobson
Sources have confirmed that Jacobson, a co-host of “First Take” on ESPN2, currently is serving a one-week suspension because of her behavior at a Jan. 11 roast for ESPN Radio personalities Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic at Atlantic City, N.J.
She’s really sorry, though.
In a statement, Jacobson said, “I am sorry. My remarks about Notre Dame were foolish and insensitive. I respect all religions and did not mean anything derogatory by my poorly chosen words. I also deeply regret the embarrassment I’ve caused ESPN and Mike and Mike.
“My actions at the roast were inappropriate and in no way represent who I am. I won’t make excuses for my behavior, but I do hope I can be forgiven for such a poor lack of judgment.”
It’s good to see that some standards of conduct are being upheld somewhere in the media.
