ESPN fires Doug Adler for comparing Venus Williams to a gorilla

"During an Australian Open stream on ESPN3, Doug Adler should have been more careful in his word selection. He apologized and we have removed him from his remaining assignments," a statement from ESPN reads after Adler described Venus as moving in and charging with a "gorilla effect" or "guerrilla effect" during a match against Stefanie Voegele at the Australian Open.



Addler said that he "simply and inadvertently chose the wrong word to describe her play."
