It looks like the controversy between OKC Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams and CBS Houston/blogger Anna-Megan Raley or “Claire Crawford” isn’t going to last in our media cycle. Now that “the eye” has canned Crawford/Raley, this story will be as forgotten as Rebecca Martinson in a couple days. Certainly so by the weekend.
That’s disappointing. Because like Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams herself, this story had legs. And it knows how to use them. And the Thunder cheerleader “thunder thighs” jokes; those can be put to bed now.
According to Oklahoma’s News 9:
CBS Sports Radio 610 in Houston tells News 9 that a Digital Content Manager has been fired following a blog post about an Oklahoma City Thunder Cheerleader’s perceived weight problem.
The station will not confirm who wrote the article, but several sources identify the writer as Digital Content Manager Anna-Megan Raley, who blogs under the pen name “Claire Crawford.”
I usually side with the media member in fights like these.
