ESPN Just Went Off the Politically Correct Deep End; Clowns Themselves in the Worst Way Possible

ESPN Reporter Robert Lee (R), NOT Confederate War General Robert E. Lee

ESPN, which is in a dizzying decline because of their obsession with being a progressive political propaganda network rather than cover sports, went to the politically correct nuthouse on Tuesday, pulling an ASIAN announcer from a University of Virginia college football game because his name just happens to be Robert Lee, similar to the famous Confederate War General Robert E. Lee.

Here’s the imbecilic statement ESPN issued regarding their discriminatory decision, as was originally reported by Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage:

“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.”

Can you believe this? Maybe the announcer could self-identify as somebody else to please the false progressive god of political correctness. It’s hard to believe that there are snowflakes so easily offended that they would literally be triggered by an Asian football announcer’s name.

And if there are leftist lunatics who would be triggered by an Asian announcer by the name of Robert Lee, that’s a “THEM” problem and ESPN shouldn’t be bowing to their mental disorder.

ESPN, owned by Disney, has a long history of making stupid decisions in the name of political correctness, like the firing of Curt Schilling, which is why they are failing. They are now officially a laughing stock.
