Paul Pierce must have forgotten that ESPN is owned by Disney, but he should remember now.
On Monday, it was announced that the Worldwide Leader in Sports has “parted ways” with the NBA legend after Pierce shared a video on Instagram Live last Friday that showed him surrounded by strippers.
Pierce was having the time of his life with the strippers surrounding him and a cigar in his mouth, but the video did not get the ESPN stamp of approval.
“ESPN and NBA Legend Paul Pierce have parted ways, according to sources,” Michael McCarthy of FrontOfficeSports.com wrote on Twitter. “Pierce posted videos of himself with exotic dancers on Instagram Live Friday night. Pierce has played a key role on ‘NBA Countdown’ + other ESPN basketball programming.”
ESPN has not commented on its decision.
For what it’s worth, Pierce doesn’t seem too concerned.
