Even former 49ers TE Brent Jones tried to keep Robinson on track as he said:

The 49ers and team President Paraag Marathe released a statement saying:

“The comments made by radio broadcaster Ted Robinson on Monday were offensive and in no way reflect the views of the San Francisco 49ers organization. We have made the decision to suspend him for the next two games. I informed Ted of our decision earlier today, and we will continue to address this matter with him internally. Our organization stands strongly against domestic violence and will not tolerate comments such as these.”

Robinson then issued his own statement, saying:

“I want to unconditionally apologize for my comments the other day. As a professional communicator, I am responsible for my words. My choice of words was careless and does not reflect my true feelings about domestic violence. I understand that the cycle of abuse keeps people in unhealthy relationships.  No blame or responsibility for domestic violence should ever be placed on a victim.”
