The comments have reportedly caused a “storm” at ESPN with many people unhappy about what Nichols had to say.

Predictably, Twitter had plenty of thoughts about the ongoing drama and was quick to fire off the jokes at Nichols’ expense, making it very clear that social media is on Team Maria Taylor.
