ESPN to Remove Broadcaster from UVA Game Because of His Name

Today in Stupid

The network announced late Tuesday that the announcer, Robert Lee, a part-time employee who calls about a dozen college football and basketball games a year for ESPN, would no longer participate in the broadcast of the Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville, Va., which became the center of violent clashes this month during a white supremacist gathering.

Really, ESPN thinks America cannot distinguish between a football announcer and a general who led troops against America and died among 150 years ago?  Who are these idiots at ESPN?

Robert Lee, right, an ESPN announcer. The network said that for his safety he would not be in the broadcast booth as planned for the University of Virginia’s Sept. 2 game at Charlottesville. CreditESPN, via YouTube
