Fox News sports reporter Clay Travis on Friday really really “went there” in a segment with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, repeatedly boasting about his love of boobs during a discussion on ESPN’s Jemele Hill.
The reaction from Baldwin was swift, with the CNN host berating Travis and cutting the segment short. Of course, CNN has already allegedly invited Travis back, so just how deep-seated Baldwin’s outrage was is anyone’s guess.
But the Internet sure was outraged, at first a Travis and then at CNN for inviting the right-wing provocateur on in the first place.

There are so many insightful voices in sports media. Yet, somehow, Clay Travis keeps getting held up as someone whose name is a must book.

Clay Travis is trying to get Jemele Hill fired by referencing women’s breasts. Just let that mess sink in.

Clay will say it’s just satire but sexism and misogyny are lethal. So don’t even play that it was a joke game. Dehumanizing women is deadly.

You can’t put Clay Travis on television and then be annoyed that he says something obnoxious. Like getting mad at the wind for blowing.

Shocked to discover when CNN gives a platform to a look-at-me jacklump like Clay Travis, he behaves exactly like a look-at-me jacklump

Why is CNN surprised Clay Travis said something inappropriate on TV? You booked him. Are you surprised when a fish swims? It’s what they do.
