ESPN Fires Sports Analyst Paul Pierce After Instagram Live Video Featuring Exotic Dancers
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Fired from one job and offered a new one, all in one work day. Basketball star and now-former ESPN analyst Paul Pierce is contemplating his next move. ESPN fired the 43-year-old Monday, after Pierce went live on Instagram from a party where he was smoking and seen with exotic dancers.
So he’s out at ESPN, but the live sex cam network website called CamSoda has swooped in with an offer for Pierce. They want to pay him up to $250,000 to be their first pro basketball analyst, but with one big difference. He’d do the new job while surrounded by exotic dancers.
Twitter sounded off saying, “That was quick lol,” and, “Paul Pierce made $200M from the NBA, I think he’s fine,” and “Take it! The new gig is going to be fire.”
Our question of the night: should Paul Pierce have been fired for his live video?
