ESPN pulls broadcaster off Virginia game because his name is Robert Lee

As first reported by Outkick the Coverage, ESPN is pulling a broadcaster off a Virginia Cavaliers college football game in Charlottesville because his name is Robert Lee.

Lee is an Asian broadcaster that calls multiple NCAA sports for ESPN.

ESPN has confirmed that they made the move because the game is being played in Charlottesville, Virginia and the recent tragedies that have happened there as the result of a debate over Confederate statues.



Lee, himself, has not commented on the move publicly.
