Michele Tafoya Attempts To Clarify Controversial Shohei Ohtani Tweet

Longtime NFL sideline reporter Michele Tafoya is at the center of controversy, again.

On Saturday, Tafoya took to Twitter to call on the Angels broadcast to stop talking about Shohei Ohtani.

“@Angels broadcast… Enough with the @Ohtani baseball chatter!!! @BallySportWest”.

After receiving backlash, Michele Tafoya tried to clarify her original tweet.

“We were laughing because they did not stop talking about this baseball and how someone brought it to their booth, and people taking pictures of it, and on and on and on and on and on,” she explained to the NY Post.

She also took to Twitter to comment on the original post.

Michele Tafoya also caught some flak last year with a comment she made about Colin Kaepernick.

“Why are we even teaching that the color of the skin matters? Because to me, what matters is your character and your values,” she said.

After last season, Michele Tafoya retired from her longtime post as a top NFL sideline reporter.
