Radio host Rush Limbaugh on Thursday suggested that football fans would reward a Florida State player’s behavior after he was suspended for shouting obscenities about female genitals.
Deadspin first reported on Tuesday that Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston had been seen by students standing on a table in the student union, and yelling, “f*ck her right in the p*ssy.”
The phrase is an Internet meme that was derived from a hoax video of a fake local news report.
Florida State officials announced on Wednesday that Winston would be benched for the first half of Saturday’s game against Clemson.
On his Thursday radio show, Limbaugh explained that Winston had been suspended for “shouting about vaginas and stuff.”
“I’m going to make a prediction to you,” the conservative host said. “I guarantee you when this guy shows up for the second half, he’s going to get a standing ovation.”
“He’s going to get a standing ‘O’ from the students. He’s going to get a standing ovation of support for having been suspended, and he’s going to get a standing ovation for having the guts.”
Limbaugh added: “He’s going to get a standing ovation for doing what he did. ‘That a way, that a way to bust through, man. Way to really blow out the envelope, man. That’s so cool.’ And they’re going to give him a standing ‘O.’ You wait and see.”

Morning show gives airtime to panel of white ‘Karens’ who blame Black Lives Matter for making name a slur
A British TV news program gave airtime to a panel of white women named Karen who say they have been unfairly maligned.
In a segment on Monday, ITV's Morning Show talked to three women about "memes" that use their name as a slur.
"I just noticed a few memes and TikToks going on and it started of being quite funny," Karen Masters told the program. "And when the Black Lives Matter protests started, there was a lot of media putting Karen as racist. It sort of took on a life of its own."
"And I feel that we can't, as Karens, now talk about how it's affecting us because we are told that we're entitled if we do this," she continued. "So I set up a Change.org [petition] to show that this is not fair for us to have to put up with this."
