Congratulations Kelly Tilghman. You’re the winner in a landslide!
HONOLULU (AP) — Golf Channel suspended anchor Kelly Tilghman for two weeks on Wednesday for saying last week that young players who wanted to challenge Tiger Woods should “lynch him in a back alley.”
Tilghman was laughing during the exchange Friday with analyst Nick Faldo at the Mercedes-Benz Championship, and Woods’ agent at IMG said he didn’t think there was any ill intent.
Faldo and Tilghman were discussing young players who could challenge the world’s No. 1 player toward the end of Friday’s broadcast at Kapalua when Faldo suggested that “to take Tiger on, maybe they should just gang up for a while.”
“Lynch him in a back alley,” Tilghman replied. (H/T – CNN)
Will someone please give Tilghman a history book? Okay, bimbo, turn to the chapter about slavery. Got it? Good. Now, read aloud for the class, then discuss how “lynching” would make African-Americans feel a little uncomfortable.
