ESPN Suspends Max Kellerman for Hitting His Wife
It looks like there’s no statute of limitation on domestic violence at ESPN. From the The Hollywood Reporter:
The sports network has suspended host Max Kellerman after he admitted Monday on ESPN-LA Radio show Mason & Ireland that he hit his then-girlfriend, Erin, several years ago. Max and Erin have now been married for 20 years.
“Max Kellerman will return to ESPNLA Radio and SportsNationon Thursday,” ESPN said in a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter.
Max explained in the story that he and Erin were at a college party and were drunk at the time. Max said that Erin slapped him, and so he slapped her back.
To be fair to Max, he seems to have been following Joe Biden’s advice that you can hit a woman in self-defense:
“I believe… the abuse of power is the worst sin that can be committed. And the cardinal sin is for a man to raise his hand to a woman. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman under any circumstances except self-defense.”
