You're probably not surprised that a guy who writes for an ultimate bro-rag did something misogynist. Mark Mravic, an editor at the bikini/sportsball publication Sports Illustrated posted the following tweet calling out his co-worker Andy Benoit for his views on women's sports:

One man calling another man out on his bullshit. Definitely the perfect way to start a nice little Twitter boy-fight. Andy Benoit responded to the tweet like a portrait of a sexist nightmare:

If I could have one wish, I'd wish to turn into a cartoon character so I could express my seething rage by having smoke billow out my ear-holes. Amy Poehler agreed with this sentiment and roasted Mr. Benoit on Late Night with Seth Meyers:

Following the extreme burn on national television, Benoit issued an apology:

"I got carried away responding to playful ribbing ... and, in my stupidity, overcompensated by saying something ignorant and extreme. 100% mistake on my part, for which I'm deeply sorry."

We accept your apology, thank you. But just in case you're still frustrated, I suggest watching Amy's roast on repeat until you feel better.
