WARNING GRAPHIC LANGUAGE: ESPN's Katie Nolan calls Donald Trump a 'stupid person
07 January, 2018, 01:17 | Author: Constance French
In December, ESPN's front-facing employees attended a mandatory meeting at the company's headquarters in Bristol, Conn., to discuss the network's future and review its new policies on social media and political commentary.
In an appearance on Viceland's "Desus & Mero", Nolan jokingly called President Donald Trump a "f-- stupid person". As Sporting News reports, one of the hosts claimed the "thumbs up" gesture is seen by some as advocating "white power".
When Desus Nice pointed out that Trump frequently makes a thumbs up gesture, Nolan burst out with a string of bleeped out expletives, which she then amends to, 'that's because he's a f*****g stupid person'.
"We have looked into the totality of Nolan's comments, they were inappropriate and we have addressed it with her", the rep revealed.
Nolan joined ESPN in October, moving from Fox Sports. Hill was suspended for two weeks in October for violating the network's social media guidelines. That policy stems from the controversy surrounding Jemele Hill, who called Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and was later suspended for discussing a boycott of the National Football League advertisers.
Nolan mentioned that she had the flu when she made the comments.
It's unclear whether or not ESPN will punish Nolan or let the comments slide.
The revamped guidelines say employees "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians or political parties" while avoiding "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric".
