Cleveland Sports Writer Reportedly Pulled from Browns Beat for Calling Team Owner ‘A Pathetic’ and ‘Irrelevant’ Figure
Tony Grossi used to be the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Browns beat writer. Cleve Scene says Grossi was pulled from the job because of a spiteful tweet directed at team owner Randy Lerner. Here’s what he wrote about Lerner last week:
Some people figure that message was intended to be private but it ended up shared on his Twitter feed. Apparently the paper didn’t like how the tweet showed a negative bias towards the team’s owner and he apparently lost his beat because of it. Grossi did reach out to Lerner to apologize but it looks like it didn’t matter.
Good thing columnists and radio hosts don’t lose their jobs for hatred towards team owners — there wouldn’t be any left.
