Derby fans rip Tom Hammond’s appearance!/jason_hickey/status/198857789219667968

NBC Sports anchor Tom Hammond is anchoring the 2012 Kentucky Derby. Consensus is building that Hammond’s makeup job was a total bust.

NBC has to ease up on Tom Hammond's makeup. Hats and horses! Place your bets! It's Derby time! #kentuckyderby

Disappointed in Tom Hammond's make-up artist this year. He needs more #latherhimup

#KentuckyDerby host Tom Hammond is a handsome woman who should fire his makeup people.
