Al Michaels Makes Harvey Weinstein Joke During Giants-Broncos ‘Sunday Night Football’ Coverage

Sportscasting vet Al Michaels made a joke about the New York Giants, who at the time were 0-5, during Sunday Night Football coverage of the Giants-Broncos game on NBC.

“Let’s face it, the Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey Weinstein and they’re up by 14 points,” Michaels said half-way in the 3rd quarter of tonight’s game.

Michaels later apologized for his comment after instant internet outrage at his jest likening the team on a losing streak to the perverted Harvey Weinstein.

“Once again, for everyone who seems to forget: sexual assault and harassment is not, has not ever been, and will NEVER be funny,” Jackie Bamberger, who covers sports for Yahoo, wrote.

Jeanna Thomas at SB Nation called the joke “disturbing.”

The Giants were victorious at the mile-high stadium in Denver, often considered another feat — besides being the visitor — for visiting teams because of the altitude.
