Sports director of Kansas City NBC affiliate calls KU men's basketball team 'Gayhawks', then denies using 'derogatory' term; station backs him

KSHB's sports director, Jack Harry, was already widely reviled in the Kansas City area for favoring Missouri teams over Kansas teams. Hundreds of comments to the station's facebook page revealed little confidence in either Harry's or the station's denial of the obvious. So far, the station doesn't seem to be removing the angry commentary, of which there is a lot.
UPDATE: The station's statement, dated 12/9/2013, and accompanying comments have disappeared from KSHB's facebook page.
