Controversy and Bald
In mid 2014, Anderson met criticism as the result of her report on Michael Sam’s showering habits. Reportedly, she stated that Michael, who is openly gay, refused to take a shower before his teammates. This resulted in a backlash from the media and the LGBT community, who bashed both her and the ESPN. Jeff Fisher, the coach of the team went on to call her reports “manufactured”, and ultimately accused her of being “unethical” and “unprofessional”. At the end of the day, ESPN apologized for the remarks Josina made. In 2016, Anderson made a bet regarding Mark Sanchez which required her to shave her head if she lost. Josina did lose, shaved her head, and made a TV appearance with her bald cap and her wig off.
