Media pounds on Al Michaels over joke during Sunday Night Football

Legendary broadcaster Al Michaels was in hot water Sunday night after making a Harvey Weinstein joke during the Giants—Broncos game.

The Giants have struggled this year and were 0-5 going into the contest.

“Let’s face it, the Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey Weinstein,” Michaels quipped.

New York won the game 23-10, but Michaels grabbed headlines for the joke.

Later in the game, Michaels issued an apology, saying he was “a little flip about somebody obviously very much in the news all over the country. It was not meant in that manner. So, my apologies, and we’ll just leave it at that.”
