Radio host Dan Sileo is not exactly known for being appropriate or subtle. He's gotten himself into a lot of trouble over past insensitive remarks, already losing one job for calling three African American players "monkeys." The current 560 WQAM Miami host unleashed a bizarre, offensive Twitter attack on Erin Andrews that included a remark about her stalker being the best thing that could happen to her career. It really shows what kind of a person he is (hint: not a good one).
It started with the following tweet:
First of all, Erin Andrews wouldn't be the one to report on Manti Te'o. She's a studio host and sideline reporter. So I am not sure what provoked this statement at all. And it wasn't just one person who failed on the Te'o front. Everyone was duped, from ESPN, to Sports Illustrated, to Notre Dame's athletic director. And yet this neanderthal pinpoints Erin Andrews? Andrews quickly responded:
Of course, Sileo could not let that go and goes on numerous offensive rants, first mentioning ESPN, who Andrews no longer works for, but then it gets worse with him telling her to bake him a cake, cook him dinner, and using her stalker against her amongst more misogynistic idiocy:
@johndennisweei love Erin either naked or in a porn..not at a sports desk— BonecrusherDan Sileo (@DanSileoShow) January 17, 2013
@erinandrews no...ur right Erin...does of really matter were u work..pepe hole best thing for ur career— BonecrusherDan Sileo (@DanSileoShow) January 17, 2013
I'm sorry, what? Unfortunately, I don't need to ask if this is a joke or if he was kidding. First of all, try writing a complete, coherent sentence. Second of all, Andrews had a great career before the peep hole incident and has fought hard to increase awareness on stalking and to help others who have gone through the same thing. For Sileo to bring that up in any context, let alone bringing it up to insult her, is beyond horrifying. It makes you wonder how sports talk radio could produce people like this that continue to make a living by spewing garbage.
Think dudes like that get upset because pretty girls never give guys like him attention. Its like wait a min here; your not fat and unattractive like all the rest of us so you cant possibly know what your talking about when it comes to sports.
dude chilllll out on erin did you see those tan leather pants she had on at the atlanta sanfran game how could you be mean to that chick she is a package
Wow this bonemuncher dan acts like people i know that never had a girlfriend and takes it out on females in general.
This guy was on 620 WDAE here in Tampa, got canned, then went to the So. FLA. market, and is still douching it up down there it seems. His show was possibly, no screw that, was definitely the worst radio show in the history of sports talk. Not only is he obsessed with racial politics, and he constantly embellishes his college and nfl resume. He was a bench warmer at UM and basically a practice squad guy in the nfl. However, to hear Sileo talk about it, you'd think he was a Heisman winner and has several Super Bowl rings. My friend Tony Chickillo - (who actually played @ UM for 4 seasons) said he was a total pussy and nobody could stand him...Not surprising he picks on women.
On Twitter he claimed he has an 11-year-old daughter which makes his tweets that much sadder. Tough for that little girl to grow up in a household where her father probably thinks she is good for nothing but future porn and future dinner-maker for a douche like him.
He has been bragging on Twitter that he has "20 years of experience in radio." Funny, because radio listenership has been in a steady decline for oh, about 20 years. Ever since all these SHOCKING DISC JOCKEYS took over the radio, regular people quit listening. Now all that's left is misogynist morons.
Dan who ? Who in the hell is that ?? He looks familiar....does he clean toilets at the BP station ? Or at the adult movie theater ? Funny when a brain and looks challenged nobody calls an intelligent human being a bimbo.....I'm surprised he spelled "bimbo" correct. Somebody must have told him , and then left when he got to "pepe" LOL. His comments are low and uncalled for , if he's still working for this station , the FCC needs to shut it down.
Stay classy Erin and thank you for all you've done for other victims and future victims. Fox is lucky to have you. You are missed on espn.
