Ronan Farrow Fail: Referred To The NBA Starting Lineup As “Start-Up Line”

The gaffe-tastic MSNBC host Ronan Farrow has made another on air flub. Farrow was trying to make a basketball metaphor during an introduction segment and the whole thing went terribly wrong.

Farrow was going for “starting line-up” while discussing the Donald Sterling fiasco and ended up saying, “A hotly anticipated NBA news conference where the league has an opportunity to prove it doesn’t need racists in its start-up line.”

Enjoy the cringe-worthy gaffe. We’re sure this won’t be the last one.
