ESPN Pulls Announcer From Virginia Football Game Over Name

 

Viral reports that ESPN has pulled Announcer Robert Lee from covering the University of Virginal football game in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville. 

iRumorMill.com Determination: Real

ESPN Robert Lee

The reports are real according to an Aug. 23, 2017 article by Fox News, which said, "It is highly doubtful he is a descendant of the Civil War general. And to our knowledge, there are no monuments or statues in his honor posted anywhere in Charlottesville." 

Fox went on to say, "Mr. Lee happens to be Asian-American."

Political correctness seemed to be the motive at ESPN, according to the article's author, Todd Starnes. When he spoke to ESPN he asked the sports network if they had plans of pulling announcers with the the names of Jefferson Davis or Stonewall Jackson. ESPN did not get back to him. 

Starnes listed out the facts:

"Robert Lee (the broadcaster) is not a descendant of a Civil War general. He did not own slaves. He did not fight in the War of Northern Aggression. He is not a neo-Nazi. He is not a member of Antifa. And he had absolutely nothing to do with the violent protests in Charlottesville."
