Rich Lerner just called Brian Harman "the diminutive lefty."



Please fire him, have him take a course in cultural competence, and make him apologize.



Jesus Christ, it's not 1955 anymore.



This post isn't for discussion; I hope NBC finds this and sees how abhorrent their employee's comment was in the telecast today.

    Some might find your use of the Lord's name in that context as equally abhorrent as Lerner's use of the word "diminutive". I think you should be fired from your job and forced to take a course in religious sensitivity.

    Technically, Comcast is who you need to direct this anger towards...and then you'll have your opportunity to talk about PC with the Big Guy.
