Paul Pierce’s time with ESPN has come to an end, and it’s all because of him filming his poker session that was filled with strippers twerking.
The Boston Celtics legend was let go by the Worldwide Leader in Sports after a recent Instagram Live video went viral for all the wrong reasons.
However, ESPN actually would’ve kept him aboard if only it was somebody else who was recording the above video. Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported if someone Pierce was with posted the video, he might still be working for ESPN.
“According to sources, ESPN was particularly miffed that Pierce chose to put the videos out on his own accord,” Marchand said. “If he had been filmed doing the same activities and they became public by someone else, he may have kept his job.”
Pierce filming himself with strippers = Bad.
Somebody else filming Pierce with strippers = Perfectly fine.
Shortly after the news dropped, Pierce took to social media and dropped a message while laughing.
“Big Things coming soon stay tuned make sure u smile,” he wrote on Monday night.
