Chris Broussard appeared on Fox Sports this week to give his thoughts on the Los Angeles Clippers’ acquisition of James Harden.
Unfortunately, his appearance quickly went off the rails. Now his job might be in jeopardy.
While talking about what transpired between Harden, the Clippers and the Philadelphia 76ers, Broussard used a slur to describe Harden.
It didn’t go unnoticed by folks watching the show.

That said, none of those things excuse what Broussard said on Tuesday.

More likely than not, he will get a stern talking to from Fox Sports at the very least. At the most? His job could be in jeopardy.
What sort of consequences will Broussard ultimately face for using a slur to describe Harden? An answer one way or the other will emerge soon enough.
