KC Sportscaster Denies Using 'Gayhawks' Slur Even Though It's on Video: WATCH


Kansas City sportscaster and avowed Missouri fan Jack Harry made waves on social media over the weekend after he used the term 'Gayhawks' to mock the University of Kansas Jayhawks basketball team.

SB Nation notes the clip "does not remotely appear to be doctored."

Harry later posted a video to YouTube denying that he ever made the remark, even though there is a clip online of him making the slur.

Watch both clips, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. A bigot who lies about being a bigot, even in the face of incontrovertible evidence. Gee, imagine that.

  2. "I would never say what I have been accused of..." ROLL THE TAPE!

  4. ...'cause this is so much easier than apologizing for what I really said, right?

  5. Unrated MU beat rated UCLA and rated KU was beaten by unrated CU that day. He was obviously full of it that night. Certain retirement parties are being scheduled today. But then as last station in KC, this might goose ratings.

  7. he was wrong to say it, but i don't think it should be made into a huge deal. he's obviously regretful.

  8. well, there is another on air personality at that station who would know if Jack would say that or not. Someone should ask him.

  9. It's a word used all too frequently on sports message boards when referring to ku (mostly by Missouri and K-State fans). Carey is an old coot and steps in it quite often. And he's not a "Missouri fan" as he irritates all local fan bases equally. Oh, and Kansastock: ku does suck; however, just not in a good way.

  10. @Reality: He's only regretful that he was caught saying what he said.

  11. I call B.S. on this one. If you watch the original youtube upload video of this it clearly shows that this was edited right before he said "gayhawk". The video clip stops, and is moved from it's position from where the camera was being held towards the TV. THIS IS AN EDITED FARSE AND I WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO CALL WHOEVER UPLOADED IT A LIAR AND A DEMON FROM HELL. I hope Jack Harry sues you.

  14. The HD feed is out. He said "gayhawks" very clearly.

    Mr. Harry is now a proven liar in addition to being a purveyor of gay slurs.

  15. And why is this gay slur?!
