    Golf Channel suspends anchor who made 'lynch' comment about Tiger Woods

    The Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman will serve a two-week suspension after saying during a recent broadcast that one way younger players could best Tiger Woods would be to "lynch him in a back alley."

    She later apologized for the comment, but critics called for the network to remove her as one of the lead announcers for its PGA Tour coverage.

    "There is simply no place on our network for offensive language like this. While we believe that Kelly's choice of words was inadvertent and that she did not intend them in an offensive manner, the words were hurtful and grossly inappropriate," the network says in a statement, according to Newsday.

    Here's the complete statement.

    THIS IS LEARNED BEHAVIOUR!

    Lynching is one of the the Cornerstones of American Culture and Family Entertainment...........

    .........she probably stumbled upon photographs in her Family Album or in her Family Attic:

    Pictures of White Americans/Her Relatives of all ages dressed in their Sunday best Cheering along gleefully as the bodies of Black People were hung from trees in their White Only Towns from back in the day.
