Hugh Douglas Fired After Spat w/ ESPN Co-Host Michael Smith
We recently reported of an incident between ESPN journalist Michael Smith and former NFL player-turned-commentator Hugh Douglas.
Douglas and Smith got into a disagreement at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention and Career Fair, and according to witnesses, Douglas used the n-word and called Smith an Uncle Tom.
Now, Sports Illustrated is reporting that Douglas has been relieved of his duties at ESPN:
The former NFL player and Numbers Never Lie panelist was let go by ESPN today after disturbing details emerged last week from Deadspin and The Big Lead regarding an alleged confrontation between Douglas and ESPN Numbers Never Lie host Michael Smith at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention and Career Fair in Orlando. ESPN issued a statement last Tuesday saying, “We are aware there was a disagreement between Hugh Douglas and Michael Smith. We are looking into the situation.”
What do you think?
Should Douglas have been fired?
