Former Kansas State University student Kellee Stewart from Manhattan ended his career as a betting analyst at ESPN before Friday.
Less than a month has passed since then ESPN Announces Employing Stewart To share her views on sports betting shows such as “Daily Wager” and “Sports Center,” the network broke up with her after discovering an insensitive tweet she sent about 10 years ago and later deleted. I decided that.
“ESPN notified me that my contract was terminated due to a tweet deleted in 2012,” Stewart wrote on social media. “The words I used are unacceptable. I know it’s hurtful. I sincerely apologize for this misjudgment, but apologize for me and many other women for fighting the vicious attacks that endure anonymous online vandalism. Can’t be. “
“I regret the words I tweeted more than 10 years ago, but overwhelmingly threatened by women who are trying to make a living in men’s sports. On the other hand, I don’t regret having stood up for myself. The gambling industry. I believe that in order to survive in this industry, I have to stand up for myself, threatening violence and misogynistic insults. Responded in the most powerful words he could think of. Ten years later, I wish I hadn’t decided to deal with their violence myself, but I can’t change my past. “
An ESPN spokeswoman confirmed that Stewart was fired by Wichita Eagle on Friday night, but said he “will not comment further.”
Stewart has entered the sports betting scene over the last decade while living in Las Vegas. She has recently been an analyst for Bleacher Report and WagerTalk.com. She has also appeared on several other platforms, including ESPN Radio in Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Review Journal.
She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Kansas State University and a Minor in Leadership Studies. Her love for sports at Kansas State University was evident in her social media posts and video appearances.
At ESPN, she was supposed to appear on television, podcasts, and radio shows. But it’s no longer working.
She complained to ESPN for not allowing her to fulfill her contract.
Stewart writes: “I’m not proud of everything I said in my life,” Stewart wrote. And 10 years from now, I hope to be a better person than this. I don’t think anyone should be judged by their best or worst tweets, and ESPN is 10. I’m disappointed that the same misogynistic trolls that harassed me online a year ago allowed me to continue to affect my life 10 years later.
“Women in the sports world have challenges that only men can imagine online, especially since I was suspended for these tweets by another company a few years ago, so ESPN is willing to do it for me. I wish I had stood behind, but I have no control over their decisions. I only say I’m sorry for some of the mistakes I made when I was young. I can’t help it. “
