Former USMNT Oguchi Onyewu Apologizes for Joking About Choking Female Co-Host!
On Sunday night, former Unified Spatial Metrology Network star Oguchi Onyewu learned that you can’t joke about choking anyone on live TV especially if your co-host is a female named, Janelly Farias.
Men would dust that off because they’d understand it’s a figure of speech, but NOT a woman. No female will take it, blow it out of proportion and RUIN your career for life.
So Oguchi Onyewu did what he had to do and that apologizes because his co-host took the joke as a threat, as all women would. We can thank the many NFL stars who have choked out their girlfriends, fiancees, and wives over the past years, so no man can joke about domestic violence unless they want to be judged.

CelebnSports247.com reports that the mea culpa all went down during the CBS Sports broadcast of the USMNT vs. Mexico game in Denver … minutes after Onyewu got verbally aggressive with Mexican soccer star Janelly Farias.
Onyewu said as part of a segment with his co-host:
I will come across this desk and choke you!
Oguchi appeared to be joking, he let out a laugh while unleashing the comment, but still, the remark was immediately criticized on social media.
In fact, the backlash grew so loud, later in the broadcast, Onyewu felt the need to apologize on air.
Early in the show, you know, throughout our banter back and forth, I got carried away for sure…And I said a stupid thing that should’ve never come out of my mouth.
The 39-year-old continued:
And I am deeply sorry for it and I apologize to you and I hope that you can forgive me and don’t take any offense to it. So, I just really want to sincerely apologize for what I said.
31-year-old Farias quickly accepted Onyewu’s apology … dapping him up on the set and saying:
I think the fact that you can say that on national television speaks volumes of you.
