The Raiders hired Musburger as an radio broadcaster this year, signing him to a three-year contract to replace longtime announcer Greg Papa
His latest tweet was not the only time the 79-year-old announcer has said something offensive.
He famously criticized the African American athletes who protested at the Mexico City Olympics in 1968, deriding them as "black-skinned storm troopers."
"I honestly can't say that I fell out of my chair in surprise," said Daniel Durbin, the director of the USC Institute of Sports, Media and Society, referring to Musburger's long history with statements that are perceived by some as racist or sexist.
Durbin says what players, and even broadcasters, do on social media can reflect on their franchises.
"Musburger wrote a tweet that really pushed the lines of good taste especially in our day and age and it really put the Oakland Raiders in a bad light," he says. "It doesn't help the NFL's image either."
One of the leaders of the agency that oversees the Oakland Coliseum, the stadium where the Raiders play their home games, was not happy with Musburger's tweet either.
"As a long time Raiders fan, we were all upset that the Raiders found the need to replace Greg Papa with Musburger," said Chris Dobbins, President of Save Oakland Sports and a Commissioner on the Coliseum Joint Powers Authority.
"You have a public job," Dobbins said of Musburger. "You can make comments that support your political views without trashing somebody else."
Raiders fans and sports nuts alike have clamored to condemn Musburger's comments on Twitter, calling him an "ignorant bigot", while others are demanding his dismissal.
Mike Freeman, an NFL columnist for Bleacher Report, also weighed in, questioning the Raiders' stance on Musberger's remarks:
