Tappen: Roenick’s comments ‘unacceptable’

BALTIMORE -- Kathryn Tappen responded to Jeremy Roenick's recent comments on Spittin' Chiclets regarding her and other NBC Sports employees.

In the episode of Spittin' Chiclets, Roenick spoke about a vacation he took with his wife and Tappen, another host on NBC Sports. Roenick said during the vacation, a woman at the resort asked Roenick about the nature of his relationship with the two women. “I play it off like we’re going to bed together every night, the three of us,” he said. “If it really came to fruition, that would really be good, but it’s never going to happen.”

Tappen issued a response to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal through NBC PR saying she doesn't condone Roenick's comments.

“While Jeremy and I continue to be good friends, what he said was unacceptable, especially among workplace colleagues. I do not condone his comments," she said.

Roenick has yet to comment on the matter.
