ESPN suspends Adrian Wojnarowski for verbally abusing the US senator
ESPN has suspended NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski for responding to a US senator by email “F ** k you”.
Woj, undoubtedly ESPN’s star when it comes to the latest basketball news, replied to a press release from Senator Josh Hawley, in which he revealed that he was NBA commissioner Adam Silver about the league’s relationship with China and its refusal to accept the U.S. military support, wrote.
The surprising answer was recorded on the screen and posted on Twitter, prompting the reporter he apologized via his own Twitter account.
Woj, usually very active on Twitter, has not tweeted since the apology was released on Friday.
ESPN had previously condemned Woj’s actions.
“This is completely unacceptable behavior and we do not tolerate it,” the network said in a statement. “It is inexcusable that someone who works for ESPN reacts like Adrian to Senator Hawley. We speak to Adrian directly and the details of these discussions remain internal. “
An ESPN spokesman declined to comment when contacted by Outkick. Neither Wojnarowski nor a representative could be reached after the report.
