Why OWL commentators say "Reflect"?

General Discussion
It's called "Deflect". Can they stop?
If the attack failed to hit the Genji due to Deflect, it was deflected.

If it also then hits the attacker, the attack was reflected.
    Almost any time there was a Deflect worth commenting on, the correct verb is reflect.
Commentators also said damn I'm offended and believe they should be suspended and fined
it took the forums a couple months to stop saying it...

This is correct.
Literally unwatchable.

Tons of characters say "damn it" when they get discorded. Junkrat, Soldier, Reaper, I think Ana, plus some more. They're not saying anything worse than the content that's already in the game.
Because you start to reflect on your existence when you shoot far from him and somehow your shot hits his huge hitbox back at you.
Does it really matter? You don't control their sense of how they want to say things, don't like it, don't watch it, simple as that.
