A couple of high profile media personalities found themselves under scrutiny for saying things that either did offend or might have offended someone.
Listen to the Pure Opelka podcast on this topic.
Comedian George Lopez was booed off a stage in Denver after telling some anti-Trump jokes to an audience filled with Trump supporters at a fundraise for Juvenile Diabetes.
And then there’s the (non)controversy from NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Veteran sportscaster Al Michaels found himself trending on Twitter after making a comment about the beleaguered New York Giants. “Let’s face it, the Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey Weinstein, and they’re up by fourteen points.”

Michaels’ sidekick, former NFL player, Chris Collinsworth could be heard chuckling a little at the quip.
A bit later in the broadcast, Michaels apologized.
