A Philadelphia sports talk radio personality is under fire for calling Eagles lineman Jason Kelce a house negro. The analogy was prompted by Kelce attending a press conference held by his team to welcome their new head coach, Doug Pederson.

Josh Innes of 94 WIP, who has bashed the athlete previously for “brown nosing,” launched into a rant about Kelce showing his face at the press conference:

“I was watching Malcolm X yesterday. I was in the airport in Memphis watching Malcolm X, and there was a scene where Denzel’s doing the whole thing about the slave and the house Negro, right? And like, the house Negro is the guy who’s gonna tell you like, oh, he gets to live in the big house with the boss, and every time he refers to something that happens in the house it’s ‘our house’ and ‘we’ and everything like that. And then there’s the actual slave [who’s not] the house Negro that’s just trying to run away. Essentially what you’re getting here is Jason Kelce is the house Negro is what I’m trying to convey to you.”

Of course, Innes has since apologized, later stating on air, “I think [Jason Kelce] is the Eddie Haskell of the team, whoever the coach is he’s gonna kiss the coach’s ass, that’s always been my opinion of Jason Kelce. And then I tried to make a comparison to how I was watching Malcolm X yesterday, and I made a bad analogy, and for that I apologize. I’ve seen all this like Deadspin, and I’ve seen all these people who are tweeting me. Like literally I’m the dumbest human being on the planet.”
