Will ESPN Fire Domonique Foxworth For Racist Josh Allen Comments?

ESPN sports analyst Domonique Foxworth sparked controversy this week when he revealed that he enjoys it when Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen fails because he doesn’t like Allen’s fans.

Foxworth made the comments on the ESPN podcast “The Right Time with Bomani Jones” on Tuesday.

“I am fully aware that I have biases,” he said.

“And my biases are not based on Josh Allen. It’s based on the people that are defending Josh Allen. I would be 100 percent lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. And it’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed.

“It’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the second coming and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skulls and crossbones. … If you go just take a dip into their tweet history, it’s some really concerning retweets and likes. … It’s not about Josh.”

It’s not hard to read between the lines of Foxworth’s comments and quickly pick up on the racial undertones.

Needless to say, folks on social media reacted immediately.

Will ESPN ultimately comment on Foxworth’s points and the subsequent backlash? Time will tell.
