Erin Andrews might be the go-to female sportscaster of the day, but she’s by no means 100 percent perfect. Like the rest of us, the former Dancing With The Stars contestant is prone to the occasional stumble. But Erin’s latest mixup is a bit amusing, as the Fox College Football host appears to have confused Justin Verlander with musician and wild child wannabe Justin Bieber!
Justin Verlander and Justin Bieber…they’re sooo similar, ya know? At least, that’s what Erin Andrews seems to think, as, during an interview with Mike Napoli, she stumbled over Justin Verlander’s name. Such a stumble is somewhat understandable; after all, ’Verlander’ doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. But many audience members felt that Erin’s pronunciation of the athlete Justin’s surname sounded suspiciously like ‘Bieber,’ and thus, are now convinced that the sportscaster has a bad, bad case of Bieber fever.
As can be expected, Erin wasn’t too happy about the accusations related to her alleged flub. When a Twitter follower asked the sports broadcaster whether she’d confused the two Justins, she responded, “My lord…people are unreal.” As the questions continued, Erin once again took to social media to clear up the rumors, tweeting, “If u really think I have Bieber on my mind, then u are soooooo right.” And then, just in case we didn’t get the obviously sarcastic tone of her post, she added the following redundant hashtag: “#sarcasm.”
Check out a video of the contentious moment for yourself and then head to the comments section to tell us whether you think Erin Andrews accidentally mentioned Justin Bieber. We know you have an opinion and we’re eager to hear it!
