Even ESPN hosts do it?
Hugh Douglas has confirmed his departure from ESPN. The former football player and host of “Numbers Never Lie” was fired following reports of an alleged confrontation with his co-host Michael Smith at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention and Career Fair in Orlando earlier this month, Variety reports.
Douglas was let go on Tuesday, following media claims that he had threatened to beat Smith up at the convention, purportedly calling him an “Uncle Tom” and a “House n****” during the incident. Initially, the network said that it would look into what unfolded and that inquiry has apparently now come to a close.
