Star NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski got in hot water this week for sending a profane email to a senator-in fact, the email was a profanity-but Wojnarowski is finding support among NBA players, Yahoo! Hawley had sent an email criticizing the National Basketball Association for the messages allowed on the back of players' jerseys during the National Basketball Association restart.
Just a couple of days ago, the Twittersphere was sent into a frenzy as an e-mail from Adrian Wojnarowski popped up on the timeline. Josh Hawley in an email. "It makes them real mad", Hawley tweeted with an apparent screenshot of the response. "I'm sorry for the way I handled myself and I am reaching out immediately to Senator Hawley to apologize directly". It is inexcusable for anyone working for ESPN to respond in the way Adrian did to Senator Hawley.
ESPN released its own statement Friday, reading: "This is completely unacceptable behavior and we do not condone it". The website Outkick first reported Wojnarowski's suspension. It also addressed the National Basketball Association plans to allow a specific list of social justice messages that players could feature on the back of jerseys upon resuming the 2019-20 season.
After a quick apology and statement from ESPN, it was revealed late last night that Woj had been suspended by ESPN, for an indefinite amount of time.
But his tweet on Sunday, which appeared to show an army of supporters coming to Wojnarowski's aid after his suspension for the profane letter along with the hashtag #FreeWoj, looked to put the Celtics center squarely in Woj's camp. In his letter to Silver, Hawley suggested players also display messages that support police and the military.
