Don Geronimo caught making s*xist comments towards female reporter
According to reports, Geronimo made a number of derogatory and sexist remarks towards WUSA9 Washington, D.C. reporter Sharla McBride. Don made the comments while talking to his co-host Crash Young. He even remarked “Hi, Barbie girl” while she passed by him. Geronimo came across McBride in a later segment under the program, where he mentioned that she was the lady his co-host Young had described as “tight.” To which Young replies, “Yah. I screamed tight when she was.…”, before getting interrupted. Geronimo continued the conversation and said that she must be a “cheerleader.”
While speaking on the issue, McBride stated that she felt “hurt” by the remarks about her on the radio show. She revealed how she felt incredibly insulted and embarrassed stating:
In my 17 years as a professional journalist, I have never been disrespected in such a blatant manner while trying to do my job. Their words were sexist and misogynistic. No woman should experience this in the workplace, and I appreciate the Commanders’ swift response in handling this matter.”
