Former Washington defensive end Dexter Manley won’t be welcome back on D.C. radio station WTOP after he directed a gay slur toward former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman on the air today.

According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, Manley appeared on WTOP this morning and was asked about listening to Aikman handle the color commentary on Sunday’s Washington-Denver game. Manley answered by slurring Aikman.

“I think Troy was a queer,” Manley said.

When the WTOP hosts told Manley they didn’t think that was appropriate, Manley initially said he wouldn’t apologize but then backed down.
