Fox Sports cancels The College Experiment, and this one had nothing to do with ratings and all. Instead, it was a backlash from a piece gone bad.
As The Hollywood Reporter informed: The segment, which was filmed on the University of Southern California campus, aired last week and Fox Sports spokesman said in a statement that the video was “offensive and inconsistent with the standards Fox Sports believes in and we sincerely regret that it appeared.”
“We sincerely apologize to the Asian and Asian American communities, and to everyone else who found this video offensive, and again to the University of Southern California, which was the unfortunate setting for the video,” the spokesman said.
Is this, as some people says over political correctness? Was it offensive? I had not the opportunity to watch the video, and it was taken down from Fox Sports site, so now I don´t know. Anyhow, if it was offensive, it´s good to see Fox canceling The College Experiment. You be the judge.
What do you think? Is it good that Fox Sports cancelled The College Experiment? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
