Sideline reporter Emily Austen got the boot from Fox Sports Sun and Fox Sports Florida after making some poor choices on Barstool’s Rundown Thursday.
Austen, who worked sideline for Rays and Magic games, chimed in on Kevin Love’s concussion and dropped the hammer on him by calling him “a little bitch” — an interesting move for someone who interviews NBA players for a living.
In addition to calling out K-Love, Austen was labeled “Trump Jr.” after stating she “didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart.” She also had some thoughts on Chinese and Jewish people, which you can watch in the video below (Love comments at 11:15):

The statement from Fox Sports Florida (via The Tampa Bay Times):
“We were made aware that Emily Austen appeared in a social media video unaffiliated with Fox Sports in which she made insensitive and derogatory comments. She was not speaking on behalf of Fox Sports, nor do we condone any of the statements she made in the video. Emily has been advised that her comments were unacceptable, and she is not scheduled to appear on any upcoming Fox Sports Florida or Fox Sports Sun broadcasts.”
