Cringeworthy: Known rat Brian Windhorst attempted a Joel Embiid impression, fails miserably
Jesus Christ. Haven’t we realized by now that trying to do an impression of Joel Embiid is a stupid idea? I thought we were all on the same page after Jack MacMullan attempted an impression on the Bill Simmons Podcast. Apparently, Brian Windhorst didn’t get the memo.
Here’s Brian Windhorst doing a Joel Embiid impression
This never turns out well. The last time this happened, Bill Simmons had to release a full-blown apology for airing MacMullan’s Embiid impression on his podcast. Here’s what he said after the podcast episode aired.
“Just a heads up Jackie MacMullan and I talked about Joel Embiid on my podcast. She did a quick impression of Joel. We realized afterward it could be taken the wrong way. It was a little too late so as a result, we uploaded an edited version as soon as we could. We apologize about that.”
Now, we have Klutch Sports fanboy, Brian Windhorst, trying to do the same? Yikes.
Having someone do an impression of Joel Embiid’s Cameroonian accent will never work. Period. Not to mention, the impression that Windhorst AND MacMullan tried to pull off was absolutely terrible.
Of course, just like last time, social media will likely have a field day calling this clip “racist” which I don’t think is an accurate response either. All this shows is a complete lack of self-awareness and Brian Windhorst should have known better, realizing that people will never think this is funny or appropriate.
I’m sure the intent was relatively harmless but still, let’s be smart about impressions.
At the VERY least, make it a good one, Windy, you rat.
