insulting and wonders if they would do the same with the Spanish language or Japanese? Matlin says deaf people HAVE a sense of humor, but faking signs that we use isn’t the same. ‘That stuff was just dumb.’

Terry Bradshaw is “really upset” he’s being accused of racism after comparing a Reggie Bush Touch Down run to someone chasing a “bucket of chicken” .

Bradshaw says he’s having a hard time with the haters because that’s not him saying “I never put those two things together because I don’t think like that.” Johnson is sure there was no racist intent and added, “I love fried chicken. A lot of people love fried chicken, so what’s the big deal?”
