A San Diego Chargers radio announcer has been ordered to keep quiet after making an anti-Semitic joke.  

Hank Bauer is getting ridiculed on social media and certain circles in the NFL after he reportedly made a joke during a preseason football game.  

Bauer said the invention of copper wire came after dropping a penny between two Jewish people.  

Bauer's broadcast partner happens to be Jewish. Despite Bauer's apology, officials with the Chargers announced Tuesday that's he's been suspended for using poor judgment.  

Bauer's suspension will keep him from broadcasting Thursday night's game.
