Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN has expressed regret at sending an email that took him two weeks to work and says the network has rightly suspended him because he has given them no choice.
The NBA insider was temporarily freed from media Obligations after answering “F ** k you” in an email to US Senator Josh Hawley earlier this month. Wojnarowski returned to work on Friday and is reported to be operating in the League bubble in Orlando.
In conversation with the New York Post Andrew Marchand In an interview, he said:
“I regretted sending this email. I didn’t get used to it, but I sent it and I regret it. “
Woj says he tried to reach Hawley to apologize personally, but his calls to the Senator’s offices in Washington remained unanswered. He claims to have given ESPN no choice after his actions.
“I understood the decision you made,” he said. “I accept. I didn’t give them a choice. You can’t do what I did and you can’t expect the consequences.”
Hawley’s email was quite critical of ESPN’s coverage of the NBA-China relationship. Wojnarowski remained determined on this front.
“Me and we reported on the NBA’s relationship with China,” he said. “We will continue to report on it if this is justified. It was an ongoing story. “
