Josh Hawley, a Republican Senator from Missouri, sent a letter to NBA commissioner Adam Silver asking if the NBA would put messages supporting troops and saying “Free Hong Kong” on the back of their jerseys in accordance with the social justice causes and slogans they will have in that spot when the sport resumes in Orlando.
Hawley evidently cc’ed the press too, because he received a succinct email from ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski in response: Fuck you.
Don’t criticize #China or express support for law enforcement to @espn. It makes them real mad @Outkick pic.twitter.com/WJDxrotUBD

Outkick has reached out to ESPN and a rep for Woj for comment and we will update if we hear back.

WOW…listen to the tough guy! “Woj the Woke”…
That’s what a kid says when he can’t argue a point he knows is right, or when he’s busted for blatant hypocrisy. I dare say his grandparents could have told him some stories about totalitarian/communist oppression. Too funny…go break some more big sports news for your fans.
Exactly right. He must not have been listening to his grandparents, bu then again, he works for ESPN where he feels emboldened to say what everyone else in that company believes.
Now that’s a Woj bomb.
Love Outkick things are getting good boys and girls..
Carlson / Hawley 2024
What would happen if this jerk said the same thing to Senator Obama? Or when he was Prez?
The left has always been inside sports media, but they used to stick the heavy liberals on the sports reporters shows. Now they are wearing virtual signs that say they are insane liberals.
Hate to keep repeating myself, but Americans had better wake up and fast.
They just cancelled the Police here in St Pete, Florida
Yeah I head we are going to hire “social workers” instead of cops. We’ll see how that goes.
I was eating downtown on beach blvd a few weeks ago and the cops were escorting some protesters and when the protesters passed by a bunch of people stood up and clapped for the cops. It was pretty cool.
Thank God for guys like Whitlock and Travis! We need sports back bad
Things are popping off on these Twitter streets!
OMG how awful!! Please don’t stop peppering them until you get an answer.. Woj I’m going to assume that term was in reference to your AMEX bill.. and not the response to our senators letter here. Please Clarify.
This is classic. Woj and the fake woke crowd at ESPN and the NBA can’t handle truth. Sad. I thought journalists were supposed to be fair and balanced. I guess Woj, MSESPN and the NBA support communism and oppression after all. Doesn’t that group have a Redskins name to be outraged about or something?
Seriously what is wrong with Adrian Wojnarowski ? He really supports China over the US?? Maybe he can move to China and write his columns from bejing.
When you don’t have facts, and are a woke tool, this is how you respond.
Very disappointing behavior from WOJ, allegedly a well-respected member of the sports media…
A woke Woj is a fool. He kowtows to China, ESPN, and the NBA, aka socialists.
