Terry Bradshaw Says Reggie Bush Was Running Like He Was "Chasing That Bucket of Chicken"

Did you see Reggie Bush's amazing, zig-zaggy touch down run in the second quarter on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts? Well, Fox analyst Terry Bradshaw did, and in a poor choice of words, described Bush as running like "he was chasing that bucket of chicken." Whoops.

Of course, if you're new to America or something, we might need to explain that stereotyping African-Americans as loving buckets of fried chicken is generally considered racially insensitive.

Bradshaw also added, "that the wind was blowing the other day," and originally addressed the comment to Jimmy Johnson. So it sounds like it might have been an inside joke, but Bradshaw's African-American co-hosts don't exactly seem pleased.

An audible, "Oh boy," the kind that carries the tone of "Did he really just say that?" can be heard. Curt Menefee's body language definitely doesn't seem pleased after the cameras cut back to the NFL on Fox studios either.

That was too funny to actually be racist. Lighten up people... Funny race jokes should be frowned upon but nothing to be lynched over.

Buckets of chicken aren't black or white. They're goddamned American and you're crazy if you wouldn't run after one either.

Hehehehehe! Typical "Bradshaw", so cut the opportunistic "Jesse Jackson" bullshit. Remember that, the only thing "fair and balanced" in America is humor... On the same token, take it as if Bubba Clinton had said it.

I like friend chicken and watermelon just like 75% of white people also do- it is not racist

To be fair, that's also how I run when I chase buckets of chicken, which are also running away in quick, zig-zag patterns.

relax people...Bradshaw is far from racist. It was an inside joke that the crew from FOX Sport are in. the timing was bad yes, but it was not intended to be racist. put down your pitchforks people.

hum... we know he's not racist. it was a joke. no different than when a black comedian uses the word cracker in their skit. if you feel offended, grow a backbone. you know what? maybe he should get a-what do you call it "hall pass"? i forgot what Kanye calls it, but you know all know what I mean.. keep listening to his trash.

 @jgcamp99 You don't just fire Terry Bradshaw for something relatively benign.
