Dan Le Batard Deletes Disgusting Twitter Poll, Its Posting Was Clear Liberal Privilege

Today, the Dan Le Batard Show attempted to impress its Twitter followers with a “humorous” poll. It went over with the masses like a lead ballon.

The show posted a question asking if it’s funny that Jonathan Isaac, the Orlando Magic big who stood for the anthem, blew his knee out with a season-ending ACL injury.

Upon finding out it didn’t sit as well as hoped, the show deleted the poll.

Yikes.

Le Batard’s show is the epitome of far-left sports coverage. A player standing is so bothersome that it justified laughing at a gruesome injury.

Could you imagine Le Batard running a similar poll if Colin Kaepernick went down with an injury? Of course not. He’d be met with a termination letter before he had time to check his Twitter account.

According to Le Batard’s colleague, Mark Jackson, Kaepernick is a “hero.” Last night, Jackson praised the former quarterback like the modern-day Muhammad Ali during an NBA broadcast.

Le Batard’s poll was disgusting, clearly. Poking fun at an injury that not only alters a player’s career but life, is inexcusable. Unfortunately, it is also not surprising.

Excluding a few, sports media overwhelmingly looks at those who don’t kneel as enemies. Despicable bigots, they might say. The coverage of those athletes doesn’t include decency.

As is the case in any industry, employees know what they can get away with, and what they can’t. So, those in favor of the double standard, push it until they go too far.

Adrian Wojnarowski felt comfortable enough to send a “fuck you” to a senator. (I don’t need to say of which party).

Maria Taylor pinned a photo of Barack Obama to her profile as ESPN’s hosts recently keep going full-on Rachel Maddow.

A Le Batard producer called the NBA “the real leaders in sports” not long after a damning report of its relationship with China emerged. And subsequently, on-air, the network avoided the report while praising the NBA’s return and its social justice statements.

Nope, no double standard at that network…

Update: This afternoon, Dan Le Batard apologized on Twitter.

  1. Lebatard was actually pretty funny and smart back when he was a south florida radio guy who occasionally dabbled with espn, but since he became a full time ESPN guy he’s turned into an pretentious pimple of a man. The fact that he dresses and acts like a confused teenager leads me to believe he’s trying to make up for the fact he was a tremendous dork in high school and college. Likely didn’t get laid until his late 20s, maybe 30s.

  2. MESPN had the writing on the wall a long time ago. It’s been years since I watched any of their shows. Their app came off my phone forever ago. Unfortunately, they were still the network upon which to watch certain events. Can’t win them all.

  3. Not even remotely surprised by this. I honestly can’t remember the last time I watched ESPN for anything other than a college lacrosse game or MNF. And this behavior only continues to confirm my belief that they are nowhere near rock bottom, yet

  4. I can’t even stand to go to their channels unless it’s a special reason or show, like Last Dance.

    Le Batard has always been tedious. Isn’t his dad from Cuba? Boy did he fail raising his son about communism.

    Truth be told, Most athletes are not lefties. They believe that competition is bias free at the base level. They are taught to be lefties as a form of cover. Socialism doesn’t work in sports. In the actual playing of the sport each individual excels at different rates for a common goal. That is being bastardized by people like le Batard.

    Twitter seems to have scared athletes Into ‘socialism lite’.

  5. One can only hope karma catches up to LeBatard in any form. Whatever happens to that ass clown, no tears will be shed. Personally, I wish Isaac’s dad would pay him a visit and knock a few chicklets out of his mouth.

  6. Hey, Dan LeBatard,
    I know you like feedback…so lemme give ya some…the cap you’re wearing? DOPE?
    Yeah..that pretty much says it all how you got to your Peter Principle level.
    As Dirty Harry would say, “a man’s gotta know his limitations.”
    Ohhh, that’s a line from a movie? Well at least it’s memorable…unlike anything you’ve ever belched.
    You’re lucky to have made it to 10 AM…lots of your parents’ friends never made it across the straits to freedom…you DOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!
