Adrian Wojnarowski suspended by ESPN for sending a “fuck you” message in response to an email to Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley about NBA and China.
ESPN issued a statement about this incident.
“This is completely unacceptable behavior and we do not condone it. It is inexcusable for anyone working for ESPN to respond in the way Adrian did to Senator Hawley. We are addressing it directly with Adrian and specifics of those conversations will remain internal.”
In a letter, Hawley made a request to Adam Silver if the players can wear a jersey that has the name of “free HongKong”. The email was cc’d to the media that’s why Woj received it. After he replied, Woj apologize for his action.
The funny thing about this story is Wojnarowski lost a lot of money in China after he liked Darryl Morey’s tweet supporting protesters to free the HongKong.
The length of the suspension yet to determine.
