She needs to be fired, unless ESPN is looking to lose half it audience.
If I go to McDonalds, I don't want to hear the fucking cashiers thoughts on Donald Trump. If that happens once or twice I'll very likely go somewhere else to get fat.
It's funny what a different reaction you guys have when it's someone saying something anti-Trump.
I never said fire her. Unfortunately free speech with an employer isn't a thing. I'm not going to take the time to look it up, but I most certainly recall fast food workers fired for putting an opinion on twitter that was against company policy, etc. It happens all the time across all business types. Unfortunately, whether you like it or not, you are an extension of your employer 24/7. Is that right? Probably not, but similar non-controversial things have been said by other employees that have resulted in them being terminated. The current environment is not an equal playing field for all.
While his comments were distasteful, why was Schilling fired and this women not? Both people made completely obnoxious claims. One is fired and the other wasn't. I personally don't think either people should be fired. They both had an opinion about something and didn't put it on the air while on the clock. Unfortunately that's not the way it works. It really is a bad look for ESPN, there's really no disputing it. And it feeds into the far rights "feeling" that white men are essentially being discriminated against. This is not my belief, but just my observation.
I also don't believe I've defended Trump in any of my posts unless it was warranted. So you may be talking about others. I try to live in a facts based universe. Will I make mistakes, sure, but I'm not a Trump defender, fan boy, whatever you want to call it.
His employer clearly felt Schilling's comments hurt their brand more than Hill's. At least for now.
there isn't a conspiracy going on, it's just the free market at work.
But there is absolutely no evidence to back this up about Schilling. His comments were way more tame compared to what Hill said.There is plenty of ratings evidence that the left-wing SJW tilt at ESPN and the NFL is costing them loads of viewers in the past few years.
This isn't the free market at work. I guarantee you that majority of ESPN viewers prefer someone like Schilling (and his views) compared to this harpy ranting and calling everyone white racists.
