CNN Anchor Gets RIPPED for Awful Comment After Tiger Woods’ Car Crash

Sadly, the mainstream media has discovered something about the way that the human mind works that is completely and utterly despicable.

You see, every time that we feel emotion, of just about any kind, our brain undergoes a chemical reaction.  This reaction, often associated with dopamine, is something that our brains come to fiend for.  This is the reason why crying is often accompanied by a strange feeling of relief, and why we love to get riled up during sporting events.

The media knows this, however, and they exploit it by pushing the envelope whenever they get a chance.

On CNN today, one sports anchor took things a bit too far.

CNN sports anchor Andy Scholes was forced to walk back remarks he made on air Tuesday after golf star Tiger Woods was injured in a car wreck.

Scholes appeared on the cable network to weigh in on the accident shortly after news broke that a car driven by Woods had tumbled off a steep road in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. With little information available about the accident, Scholes speculated that the sports legend’s past use of painkillers may have had something to do with the accident

“What are your thoughts right now?” CNN anchor Brianna Keilar asked Scholes.

“I mean, Brianna, you know, stunned I guess but not entirely surprised by what we’re seeing here,” he answered. “You know, Tiger in 2017 was found by police pulled over on the side of the road asleep in his car. He had said he had taken a lot of painkillers at that time, because we all know Tiger has gone under a lot of surgeries over the years and painkillers have become part of his life.”

Social media users quickly tore Scholes to shreds.

Scholes’ comments led to backlash on social media, causing the CNN personality to offer multiple apologies. Authorities said during a press conference that they found “no evidence of impairment” in their initial investigation of the accident

“I’m sorry. This was delivered poorly,” he told one Twitter user.

In response to another critic who accused him of being “completely insensitive,” Scholes said he “didn’t mean for it to come out that way.”

Sadly, the ugly comment was truly just a risk of the job, as CNN would be completely unprofitable without controversy.
