ABC News couldn’t have been more disrespectful if they had tried when reporting on the death of Marion Barber.
Instead of treating him like the human being he was, the company took an incredible tone-deaf position in reporting his death to the world.
“JUST IN: Marion Barber III, the former Dallas Cowboys running back who scored plenty of touchdowns without recording a 1,000-yard season, has died, the team said Wednesday. He was 38.”
NFL fans were beyond pissed off:
The cause of Barber’s death is unknown.
After he was released by the Cowboys following the 2010 season, he spent one year with the Bears. He finished his career with 4,780 yards and 53 touchdowns on 1,156 carries in 99 games. He also caught 179 passes for 1,330 yards and six touchdowns.
