Seth Meyers & Amy Poehler Blast SI Writer Who REALLY Hates Women’s Sports [VIDEO]
On Monday night, Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit made headlines when he posted a controversial tweet in reference to women's sports. At the time, the U.S. women's soccer team was playing Colombia in a World Cup round-of-16 game. Some guy commented on the game, and Benoit retweeted the comment -- but added that women's sports in general was not worth watching:
Benoit's retweet did not go unnoticed. In fact, Seth Meyers, who hosts NBC's late-nght show, brought Amy Poehler, one of his former fellow Saturday Night Live cast members, on the show. Together the two teamed up to reenact their old "Really?" SNL bit and ripped Benoit apart. The Boise-based NFL analyst for SI deleted the tweet shortly after the controversy started, and he issued an apology the following day.
