Booger McFarland has been hearing jokes about himself for far too long, and now he is responding back to people.
Earlier this week, the Worldwide Leader announced this week that hundreds of employees have been laid off, with most of them behind behind-the-scenes employees.
“Prior to the pandemic, we had been deeply engaged in strategizing how best to position ESPN for future success amidst tremendous disruption in how fans consume sports,” ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro said in the memo to the company, via Sports Business Journal. “The pandemic’s significant impact on our business clearly accelerated those forward-looking discussions.”
ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland did not lose his job, but one fan thought he should’ve after a tweet he sent out.
“How were you not one of ESPN’s 500 layoffs?” one fan tweeted, appearing to be upset about McFarland’s comment on South Carolina football.
“Cause yo mama like watching me,” the ESPN analyst responded.
