A female reporter forgot to mute her Zoom when ripping the mustache of Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence on Friday night. That much you may already know. You may also know it seems to be have been brushed aside by the Twitter-verse.
But OutKick’s Clay Travis wonders if everyone would still be fine with it the roles were reversed.
“A female journalist ripped Trevor Lawrence for his mustache. And everyone laughed it off. Imagine the reaction if a male journalist rips a female athlete for her appearance,” Travis tweeted. “He probably never works again. And we get a 1000 woke think pieces on it too.”
Lawrence and Clemson were coming off a hammer job of a 49-28 loss in the College Football Playoff semifinals. Lawrence was solid, even good, but his offensive line was not. He is still highly likely to be the Jacksonville Jaguars’ pick at No. 1 overall in the NFL draft.
Travis did agree with the idea that Lawrence could use a shave.
“It is, however, a ridiculous mustache,” Travis tweeted.
