Dana Jacobson was suspended by the network for getting drunk and making religious slurs at a roast with fellow ESPN personalities Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic.
“We’ve had to adapt and I’ve made one change — we’re not doing any more roasts,” said John Skipper, ESPN executive vice president of content. “The big adaptation is everybody has to be cognizant we’re in a world where there is less and less privacy. . . . You have to watch what you say unless you’re in your own home sealed in a hyperbaric chamber.”
So good on you, dear HLS readers. You managed to force a top executive of an entertainment giant to get someone in the Orlando Sentinel to do a puff piece about how they’re going to change. For real this time! Seriously!
