The Day After: ESPN’s Chris Broussard Backtracks and ESPN Defends Him

Guess Chris Broussard has a good PR person. Talk about backtracking. Maybe ESPN wants Broussard on its Homophobic Pendejo team after all. By now, you should all know what he said about NBA center Jason Collins’ coming out.

Broussard has every right to his opinion, it was just weird to hear it on sports show.

Here is what Broussard shared last night:

“Today on OTL, as part of a larger, wide-ranging discussion on today’s news, I offered my personal opinion as it relates to Christianity, a point of view that I have expressed publicly before. I realize that some people disagree with my opinion and I accept and respect that. As has been the case in the past, my beliefs have not and will not impact my ability to report on the NBA. I believe Jason Collins displayed bravery with his announcement today and I have no objection to him or anyone else playing in the NBA.”

And here is what ESPN said:

“We regret that a respectful discussion of personal viewpoints became a distraction from today’s news. ESPN is fully committed to diversity and welcomes Jason Collins’ announcement.”

This is exactly where I stand on it. He didn’t have to Tebow us.

Discrimination is always wrong. Always. I do not believe he has a right to hold an opinion that subjugates the human rights of millions of Americans. 
He could start spouting off about the benefits of slavery, or human sex trafficking, and we’d be like, “Da fuq? Shut up! No matter what your religion tells you is OK, that stuff is not acceptable in today’s society. Put a sock in it.” 
We can do the same thing here.
