ESPN has been suffering this kind of ridicule for a while now.

Dude lost a pretty good job a because of his name. Not because he particularly was bad at it, you know.

Just his name.

Wow.

Oh good call ESPN, embolden the SJWs and PC brigade to call for shutting down anything they want to.

They didn't even have to tweet for this one, you GAVE it to them. You surrendered before war was even declared. Before even the hint of conflict.

I'm lucky, my real name has no historical significance and is shared by no historical figures. Anyone else out there who does? Better get used to losing a day's work or just being fired if a long dead person who shares your name suddenly becomes Social Justice enemy du jour. Maybe you want to check out legal name change procedures, perhaps pre-fill some paperwork. You know, just in case.

Great damage control. It backfired but it was a good effort.

Totally bs. To be clear he doesn't lose the job, just switching games.

They thought they was helping, but they make it worst.

SJWs are digging their grave in the wrong area -- you don't see a lot of Asians going around protesting/rioting-- but don't go there

Hey, hey, hey... THIS IS LIBRARY!

when I saw this story breaking I was all like, dang General you aged well! but seriously, it's gotten rather stupid, but ESPN is a Disney company, so I do fear how they are going to run with future shows/movies I truly do. well won't be seeing any Civil War animation coming from them any time soon that's for sure.

ironic moment, Lee is a common surname in China like Smith is a common surname in America. goodness I can only imagine more stupidity coming now, I guess Spike Lee will be under fire shortly, and Lincoln, King... dude this is the stupidiest thing either (why yes, bad grammar is needed here to represent the stupidity of it all)

oh well, moment has passed, let's see what stupid acts they got blowing in the wind now...

Spiderman Homecoming has some SJW politics in its dialogue. Not a lot, but it's noticeable. It may be only a matter of time before the MCU is as SJW as the Marvel Comics.

a lot of things coming out of Hollywood these days has some form of left garbage in it, rather small or very large and in your face, such as the most recent RE Final Chapter that whole plug about "global warming". then there's other stuff that seriously wants to run with those lies as well as others. they failed to brain wash me, however for those who can be...

Here is the latest insanity in the political correctness debacle. Some students are now claiming that the USC Trojans horse is racist because it has the same name as Robert E. Lee's horse
