ESPN has finally had enough of LaVar Ball. At least for now.
In the wake of Ball’s inappropriate comment directed at ESPN’s Molly Qerim Rose, he has been at least temporarily banned from all ESPN platforms, Richard Deitsch of The Athletic confirmed on Wednesday.
Ball was on ESPN’s “First Take” Monday when he was asked by Qerim Rose if he could shift gears, to which he replied, “You can switch gears with me anytime.”
Widely condemned for his remark, Ball said afterward that he wasn’t trying to say anything untoward to Qerim Rose. However, he has a history of making inappropriate remarks toward women on live television.
