And you thought Max Kellerman’s sports takes smelled like butt.
The ESPN personality is feeling the heat after allegedly attempting to cover up a fart during Monday’s “First Take” episode. Reddit user YaBoiMirakek was the first to point out the ill-timed waft, which occurred during a conversation about the Golden State playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers.
As you might expect, Kellerman is denying the whole thing.
Check out the the 5:40 mark in the video below and judge for yourself:
Yeah, that’s a fart.
ESPN’s Dan Le Batard gave Kellerman the opportunity to fess up during his radio show, but Kellerman insists there was no cheese cutting on the set of “First Take.”
“Right before I got off the set I saw this, right before the last commercial break, and I tried to listen for it and I couldn’t hear it,” he said, per the New York Post. “Even just now when you played it, I couldn’t hear it. But let’s say there was that noise, I don’t know who dealt it. It wasn’t me, that’s all I can tell you.”
So, does Kellerman’s denial pass the smell test? Like other alleged farts from years past, the evidence is overwhelming.
