So I was perusing the newsfeed on my iPhone and a story really piqued my interest, at first glance I swore it was fake news. Then I checked which platform it came from; was it, Facebook? CRA? CAGOP? CNN? MSNBC? No it was from Yahoo News. The headline “ESPN’s Robert Lee pulled to avoid offending anyone.”
Ok, this has to be satire right? I fell for it, I clicked on the link and the article populated in my browser. It’s not fake news folks, ESPN is truly a swamp. The article talks about an upcoming college football game featuring The University of Virginia, and the announcer named Robert Lee. Now you know here at really right we have accused Disney of being very liberally biased, but this is unreal! The full statement from Disney and I quote,
“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play-by-play for a football game has become an issue.”
Link: ESPN pulls Asian-American announcer from Virginia football game because he has a Confederate general’s name
Seriously, someone said that, and they call young people the snowflake generation. This is all due to the unrest and rioting that occurred at Charlottesville, VA over the last weekend. Here is an extenuating factor regarding this Robert Lee, he is ASIAN! Not white, he has zero connection to the Civil War general! Seriously who makes these decisions, now we are punishing people because of their name being similar to a general? Wake up America!
Cut the cord, be done with this network!
PS No liberal bias at ESPN, funny they sound just like the CRA and CAGOP!
