Zoom blunder is journo‘s worst nightmare

Every reporter’s worst nightmare played when a journalist forgot to mute their microphone during a Zoom news conference.

Every reporter’s worst nightmare played out Friday night when a scribe forgot to mute their microphone during star Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s Zoom news conference.

“Poor Trevor needs to shave his ‘stache,” the unidentified reporter could be heard saying as Lawrence – who recently introduced a light blonde moustache to match his famous long hair – answered a question about Clemson’s 49-28 loss to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff semi-final.

The presumptive No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft looked around incredulously as the video call’s moderator reminded reporters to mute their microphones.

Lawrence then laughed and responded, “Thank you.”

Sports reporter Clay Travis tweeted: “Trevor Lawrence’s reaction is the right one here, props to him. And laughing it off is what we all should do on stories like these. But you know there would be a social media mob formed in seconds demanding a male reporter be fired for saying something like this about a woman.”

All across sports, news conferences have been taking place remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Lawrence threw for 400 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during the Sugar Bowl loss.

The 21-year-old led Clemson to a national championship as a freshman and is 34-2 in three seasons, leading many to believe he will declare for the draft and be selected first-overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“The way we‘ve carried ourselves, I’m proud of it. I have no regrets,” Lawrence said.

“I’m proud to be where I’m at … proud of the man I’ve become over my time here and thankful for a lot of good people in my life.”

Ohio State will take on Alabama in the title game January 11th.
