A Fox Sports parody video that aired just before the Panthers playoff game on Sunday has some fans crying foul.
The segment comes complete with typical Southern stereotypes, like a mullet and and thick accents. Jerseys for Panthers players Cam Newton and Steve Smith are hung on the wall.
One of the guests of the segment is wearing a seersucker suit and sports a mullet. The other guest bears a close resemblance to Appalachian States mascot, Yosef the mountaineer. Both are drinking a dark liquid out of jelly jars.
Some Panthers fans in the Carolinas werent amused.
Twitter user Harold Ballard wrote: Fox Sports owes the viewers in the states of North and South Carolina an apology for the insulting pregame show. All wrong!
And Phillip Mitchell, whose Twitter handle is @Pantherfan4life7h tweeted: And you wonder why I don't watch Fox pregame anymore... That Carolina skit was horrible. But thats humor in our society.
A message to Foxs Charlotte affiliate was not immediately returned late Sunday.
