American radio host Rob Lederman was fired for racist commentary on 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams.
The incident took place on the 97 Rock Buffalo radio program Morning Bull.
While discussing the roasting level of his morning toast, Lederman said: “I would compare toast with the attractiveness of women. I will never reach the level of Serena Williams. But I’m very comfortable with the level of Halle Berry, “ Lederman’s Tennis Head quotes.
Lederman’s colleague, ESPN reporter Marcel Louis-Jacques reacted to his words on his Twitter: “There is already an annoying and undeserved stigma associated with dark skin. Rob took something unwanted, like burnt toast, and compared it to skin colour, which further exacerbates this stigma. “
