Susannah Collins 4.jpgComcast SportsNet Chicago reporter/anchor Susannah Collins made an accidental name for herself Tuesday with a Freudian Slip that quickly went viral.

By Thursday night, the Downers Grove native and University of Illinois graduate was off the air and out of a job, though Comcast said the move had nothing to do with her "tremendous amount of sex" slipup, according to a statement from management:

"Due to circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday night, Susannah Collins and Comcast SportsNet Chicago have parted ways. We appreciate everything Susannah has contributed to our network over the past year and wish her the best in her future endeavors."

Collins was hired in 2012 and replaced Sarah Kustok when she left for the YES Network.

Here's a look at how the story unfolded and the social media backlash:
