Rich Eisen - ultimate troll god

Well Jemele Hill didn't take long to implode on Twitter after the game, and Rich Eisen had a great retort.

 

Wonder how it feels to be on the wrong end of a bizarre finish you don't deserve that you'll replay over and over in your head. @jemelehill

They are just words, but the reality is that many people find them offensive, and it's pretty remarkable that ESPN would just completely ignore a statement like that from a prominent on-air personality.  She continually demonstrates a total inability to conduct herself with professionalism.

I suspect that behind closed doors, she will be having a discussion with higher-ups.

Irony is dismissing ideas as "just words" with "no harm" when you're one of thousands reading and posting to a board thats mostly "just words" on a screen.

Maybe these "words" people so blithely dismiss have another function past filling blank space and making noise.  The only possible way to label reactions as PC is to be blissfully ignorant of what language is or does.

So in other words you'll be using that language when you talk to your own children.

"Brandon, drink your fucking milk or you're going to your motherfucking room for a goddamn time out. And Melissa, you bitch, one more word out of your filthy cocksucking whore mouth and you're fucking grounded for a shiteating month."

She has a much longer leash than others in the media.  Canning her leaves ESPN very vulnerable to a discrimination lawsuit.  Her MO has been the race card and aggressive feminism her entire career.  She would claim that if she is being singled out.
