Jason Whitlock: ESPN Departure Sent Out ‘Bat Signal’ That ‘Masculinity Wasn’t Tolerated’

“I’m not scared of none of them because the truth’s on my side, and I know how to articulate it. These athletes don’t, and they need to be backed up by someone with a pair.”

Jason Whitlock left ESPN in 2015 and during a discussion on his digital show for The Blaze TV, he said the reason he departed the network was because he was too manly.

“I’m gonna say something that some of the audience — some of the audience — will be like ‘Whitlock is just self-serving, self-aggrandizing, patting himself on the back’ but I’m sorry, it’s just factual: When ESPN ran me out of there, that was them sending out a bat signal. Men with balls aren’t welcome. We don’t want any real mean. We want feminized men.

“Because I was the intellectual backbone for masculine men at ESPN. That’s what I represented. They run me off, and they say ‘No, guys, you see Bomani Jones, Howard Bryant, these feminized men? That’s our blueprint. That’s the kind of masculine energy we want to come from these guys. Highly feminized, and have a matriarchal point of view and are basically Yasss Queens themselves.'”

Whitlock added that former athletes that work in analyst roles at ESPN “aren’t smart enough” to stand up to executives to let them get their points across on TV.

“What Jalen Rose doesn’t understand, Jay Williams doesn’t understand, Kendrick Perkins, what they don’t understand is they can’t be themselves without someone like me that’s able to argue down and stand toe to toe with all these Ivy League executives they’ve got and all these other little feminists they got running around there. I’m not scared of none of them because the truth’s on my side, and I know how to articulate it. These athletes don’t, and they need to be backed up by someone with a pair, and what they’re finding out is Stephen A. Smith’s pair ain’t big enough. He’s not smart enough to stand toe to toe with these guys. He can occasionally put Malika Andrews — a child — in her place, but for the long haul — the real fight — with the executives, and all the feminists running wild, the feminized male executives running around there, they’re not smarter.

Whitlock concluded by saying he wasn’t personally attack anyone at ESPN.

“Dave Roberts is the executive backing Stephen A. Smtih, he’s not smart enough. I’m not trying to pick on any of these guys, I’m just telling you the facts. They don’t have anybody on the inside to back them up intellectually and explain these situations to them and for them on the air to give them the room to be real men and now Jay Williams understands that.”
