Social justice warriors at ESPN pulled Asian-American announcer Robert Lee from calling a University of Virginia football game late last week because he shares the same name as the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
From Fox News:
Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game "simply because of the coincidence of his name," ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.According to the New York Times, ESPN took him off the game "for his safety."
...ESPN executives and Mr. Lee decided that for his safety it would be best to have him to work on a different game that Saturday, a network spokesman said.Twitter had a field day over the move:
Evidently, after mass outrage an anonymous ESPN executive sent a letter to lefty writer Yashar Ali, the same guy who was the point man for Kathy Griffin after her beheading stunt, trying to blame everything on Lee and insist they acted to protect him from "embarrassment":
Literally no one is embarrassed for Robert Lee. The embarrassment is entirely focused on you, the higher-ups at ESPN. This letter makes it even more embarrassing seeing as how you threw Lee under the bus to try and save face and protect your own asses.
