I'm curious if Bruce Lee can triggered the SJWs as well..

Lee
Li
Le

all often pronounced as LEE by foreigners triggered!!!!

I'll request a petition for name change to Robert E. LEE -- i'll see how many will be triggered by the name before even meeting me .. It will be fun.

Great now ESPN is promoting racism and discrimination against asians. FFS This virtue signaling has gone full circle and right into KKK land.

If it was really an actual problem could they not just call him Bob for a while?


Call him by his name and if anyone complains tell them to fuck off. Don't let the racists win.

ESPN is a joke, I thought they were supposed to be a sports network and instead they are pandering to a radical fringe that is offended by pretty much everything.
You have to wonder is it trolling or are people really this stupid? I'd hope it's the former although I know it isn't.

You people realize that the University of Virginia IS IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, right?

The reasoning here makes perfect sense.

Not a big deal imo, just blown out of proportion


From an ESPN Executive



He was not fired it seems, he was switched from a game taking place in a war zone. Think about how stupid people can be to take offense at a name, or the possibility of Robert Lee getting undue amounts of attention. I mean, there was a guy in Singapore who had people swarming to his social media pages because his native name was Batman Bin Suparman, with it being a mugshot.



Think how stupid some people be, how easily things can turn into violence. It seem like perhaps an excessive cautionary measure, but the reasoning makes sense in light of what happen. The fact that people want something to rage against, to embolden the SJWs to a ubiquitous boogeyman is sad. Why is there any other reason to believe, if but to fuel our own political agenda. Jeez, calm your tits guys.

Of course, I could be overly trusting, or factually wrong. I just think it illogical to distrust people with no real evidence, nor do I think such a thing is a scandal. Just one game.

SJW supporters/sympathizers just doing what they do best. If you are Chinese with the Lee last name . Please consider picking Robert as your first name when you are naturalized -- so you can always pull the victim card and ask these sjws to check their privileges in return

Better yet-- If you are a Chinese woman with the Lee last name-- Changing it to Robert E LEE will grant you a lot of cards to use-- you can sue them for discrimnation or have them going to jail like when they used the wrong pronoun!! There's nothing wrong with a woman having Robert for first name.

Robert E. Lee -- A Chinese American woman -- let see how they will respond ?

I what the Animal Rights people will say, I mean Animal Rights must mean Animal Responsibilities, right?

The only survivor of the next American civil war is going to be Trump.

It's amazing the mental leaps and bounds one has to take to try and explain any sense into the situation here in 2017 where the mere mention of your name can apparently trigger somebody.

They reassigned him because the optics were bad. I don't see how this is worth throwing a tantrum over.
