Professional golfer Rory McIlroy was in the news yesterday when it was learned he severely injured his ankle playing soccer with his buddies. While the majority of golf fans are upset that one of the sport’s biggest stars injured himself less than two weeks before the British Open, FBN’s Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery had a different take.

Yesterday on FNC’s Outnumbered, Kennedy called the Irish golfer a “leprechaun” before adding, “I can’t stand him.”

Today, Kennedy elaborated on the comments:

Yesterday at this time I used the word leprechaun to describe golfer Rory McIlroy. I love sports, I love golf, but I am not a fan of Rory’s. Mostly for the way he treated tennis great Caroline Wozniacki and discarded her like a piece of chewed gum when he broke her heart and broke off their engagement in a short phone conversation. That’s worse than breaking up on a Post-it. Now to be clear, neither Harris nor Jenna Lee used the term and I don’t want them to get the credit for it. I called Rory McIlroy a leprechaun and believe me I wanted to call him much worse.  As you know, some of my best friends are leprechauns and they also have tremendous sense of humor. Thank you.
