Fox Business host offers clarification for why she called Rory McIlroy "a leprechaun," doesn't back down

July 07, 2015

On Monday, an on-air host was overheard on Fox News' Outnumbered program calling Rory McIlroy "a leprechaun" and saying she "can't stand him." A day later, she didn't back down from her position.

Lisa "Kennedy" Montgomery, who is still upset by how McIlroy ended his engagement with Caroline Wozniacki last year, made the following announcement on Outnumbered on Tuesday:

"Yesterday at this time I used the word leprechaun to describe golfer Rory McIlroy. I love sports, I love golf, but I am not a fan of Rory's. Mostly for the way he treated tennis great Caroline Wozniacki and discarded her like a piece of chewed gum when he broke her heart and broke off their engagement in a short phone conversation. That's worse than breaking up on a Post-it. Now to be clear, neither Harris nor Jenna Lee used the term and I don't want them to get the credit for it. I called Rory McIlroy a leprechaun and believe me I wanted to call him much worse. As you know, some of my best friends are leprechauns and they also have tremendous sense of humor. Thank you."

Hmm. OK. . .

And here's a video clip of Montgomery delivering this message on the air:

Just a guess, but McIlroy probably won't be appearing on Outnumbered anytime soon.
