The Reporter Who Called Rory McIlroy A Leprechaun Explains Herself

So it wasn't just casual racism..

In case you missed it, Fox news anchor Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery caused quite a stir by calling Rory McIlroy a leprechaun live on air earlier this week. The reporter probably felt the need to explain her actions after getting lots of flack online.

Don't expect any remorse from the anchor though, as you'll see in the video she's standing by what she said completely. She explained that while she's a sports fan, she's no fan of Rory's because he broke off his engagement with Caroline Wozniacki over a short phone call.

“That’s worse than breaking up on a Post-it. I called Rory McIlroy a leprechaun and believe me I wanted to call him much worse

Lisa Montgomery

She finished the message by saying some of her best friends are leprechauns with great senses of humour. We can't help but feel this whole thing may have been an elaborate piss-take on her part!
