NEW YORK, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens was fired on Monday night's edition of The Celebrity Apprentice.
The business-themed reality show's judge Donald Trump brought Owens, his fellow team member Johnny Damon and their project leader Ian Ziering into the boardroom, and asked who should get the boot on the program.
"It's with a heavy heart I have to say this..." Ziering began.
"Who?" Trump pressed.
"Terrell," Ziering replied.
"Terrell, who should I fire?" Trump asked.
"Based on the task itself, this fundraiser, I didn't raise enough money," Owens said.
"That is true. And you know how much I like you, and I gained great, great respect for you and you've really done a good job and I think you have helped yourself immeasurably," Trump said. "Terrell, you're fired."
