Buffalo Reporter Fired For Saying Women Are Worst Bills Fans
The Western New York sports reporter was let go today after comments he made during a live stream.
There are lots of reporters who cover the Buffalo Bills from all over the region and dozens of podcasts and live streams that make content revolving around the team every week.
Jerry Sullivan is one of those reporters. he has spent decades writing about the Buffalo Bills and Sabres, mostly for the Buffalo News. In recent years he's been writing for the Niagara Gazette. Some love Jerry and his ability to, Tell it how it is." Others loath him for his negative hot takes and ribbing of local athletes.
Then there's what he said on a podcast/live stream yesterday. Now, let's be clear here: he said women are overall better than men. However, that's not what people are focusing on. Sullivan was critical of women who are fans of the Buffalo Bills after a woman called into the program as seen below:
You have to be careful what you say, especially when it's this ignorant. Women are just as knowledgeable about the sport as men. Many are calling for Sullivan to be forced from the Gazzette and be removed from the Bills press room.
Those calls have been answered. Today the Niagara Gazette announced they have parted ways with Jerry Sullivan.
Sullivan has issued a public apology for the comments he made.
