Sainz was involved in a sexual harassment controversy with the Jets last September. While waiting to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez in the Jets locker room, Sainz was bombarded by a parade of catcalls and sexually charged comments. Sainz then tweeted in Spanish: “I’m so uncomfortable! I’m in the Jets locker room waiting for Mark Sanchez and trying not to look around me.”
Though she also wrote “I want to cover my ears” soon after, Sainz later told Spanish-language program DeporTV that she was not offended by the locker room incident.
“I want to make clear that in no moment did I even feel offended, much less at risk or in danger while there,” Sainz said. “I entered the locker room and there were some comments and some games…It was simply a situation that got out of hand…[T]he next day the press is reporting that I was a victim of harassment and inappropriate behavior by the Jets.”
In the aftermath of the Jets/Sainz scandal, former MSNBC “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann dubbed Sainz the “worst person in the world,” claiming she “undermines every female sports reporter who knows the game” and dressed “unprofessionally to cover a sporting event.”
On the day of Sainz’s visit to the Jets locker room, she donned tight-fitting jeans and a white blouse.
