Millions of Americans have stopped watching ESPN over their embrace of far left politics. Apparently that has made some people at the network quite angry. Scott Van Pelt recently called those people stupid and worse during an interview.

ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt Insults Millions Who No Longer Watch It
In a Sports Illustrated “Off the Board” podcast released on Thursday, ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt took several cheap shots at the network’s critics, in the process demonstrating how horribly out of touch he is with financial realities at his network.
Van Pelt aimed particular venom at those who have decided that they didn’t need to have cable TV any more when ESPN selected Caitlyn-formerly-Bruce Jenner as its 2015 annual Arthur Ashe Courage Award winner, calling them “so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.”
The podcast’s interviewer was SI’s Jimmy Traina, who did his part to smear those who claim they are avoiding ESPN as ignoramuses, hypocrites, or both.
“You know what, I’m gonna go ahead and cut my entire cable package because ESPN gave an award on a made-up show in July because there’s no sports to a woman who used to be a man, so I’m now not gonna have any cable TV at all, and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that.” That’s just, that’s not happening.
And if you did that, then you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.”
That’s sure to help win back angry viewers, Scott. Sheesh!
