Barstool’s KFC Getting Fired Over Tiger Woods Crash Tweets?

Barstool’s KFC Getting Fired Over Tiger Woods Crash Tweets?

A Barstool Sports personality found himself in hot water this week after making some controversial tweets about professional golfer Tiger Woods.

Late Tuesday morning reports surfaced that Woods had been involved in a violent single-car crash. While details on what led up to the accident were scarce, it was confirmed that Woods needed surgery after the fact.

Although most in the sports community responded to the Woods news somberly and with best wishes in mind, one person did not.

Barstool Sports personality Kevin ‘KFC’ Clancy, who is no stranger to controversy, decided to post some fairly unpopular tweets in response to the news.

They largely speak for themselves:

Needless to say, reactions to KFC’s humor weren’t great.

The reactions prompted KFC to delete his original tweets and offer this explanation:

Given that Barstool is already reportedly under investigation for a completely separate matter, this bit of bad publicity is the last thing the company needed right now.

Will KFC face any consequences for his decision to tweet when he probably should’ve just put the phone down?

Time will tell.
