Damn people can't say shit in this world no more

Cleveland sports-talk reporter suspended for calling Baker Mayfield a ‘midget’

“We area aware of Tony Grossi’s statement about Baker Mayfield,” the company said in a statement announcing Grossi’s suspension. “The term Tony used is a derogatory slur to describe Little People. Good Karma Brands will not tolerate derogatory language that demeans others or groups of people.”
The company also said it will conduct “sensitivity and inclusion training” for its employees.
“From Good Karma Brands, to our fans, our partners, the Browns and Baker Mayfield — we are sorry.”

Little People of America organization is extremely against that word.

They state the word comes from little people that was put on display as a show for other folks to see.

I can see why they would hate that word

I can as well. At the same time all these words folks are no longer supposed to use are not always put out into the mainstream. It's also not easy for people who have been saying words for 20+ years to just up and remember that a word they've used for so long is now offensive and shouldn't be said.

I can understand reprimanding dude and setting a training on all words now deemed to be derogatory or offensive but a suspension seems a bit much to me.

I saw from the article him and Baker got issues. Maybe he should be fired because that could mess with the business relationship the radio has with the Browns for interviews, etc. It shouldn't be because he said the word midget.
