Guy brutally burns ESPN after they ask permission to use his tweet photo, becomes instant hero

ESPN continues to reap what it has sown because of its outspoken politics.

The sports network got a brutal denial to a request to use a photo posted from the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Facebook user Jack Blakely shared the exchange between ESPN  and a Twitter user who posted a picture of a sign-holding man encouraging the runners at the annual event.

“This guy is at the #BostonMarathon right now motivating the runners. i love boston,” Abdul, a self-titled “Patriots fan” tweeted from the race on Monday.

ESPN thought permission to use the photo would be quickly granted following its “pretty please” request.

But Abdul was having none of it and ripped into the network for the “witch hunt” it led against New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

ESPN has been losing viewers as it took a deep plunge to the left last year, embracing the anti-National Anthem actions of members of the sports community as well as pushing gun control. The network fired World Series champion pitcher Curt Shilling as its baseball analyst last year over an “offensive” transgender bathroom post

Earlier this month, ESPN re-assigned sports analyst Sage Steele, a vocal critic of liberal causes like Black Lives Matter, after she expressed her conservative views one too many times for the network’s leftists.

Quarterback Tom Brady found himself at the center of a bullying storm as liberals piled on him for being friends with President Donald Trump. Brady and the president have been longtime golf buddies.

The 39-year-old who has won five Super Bowls set off a flurry of speculation Wednesday after announcing that he would not be attending the White House ceremony honoring the Super Bowl champions.

Abdul’s tweet on Monday daring ESPN to block him was apparently granted.

Social media users found the exchange quite entertaining and shared their reactions on Twitter.
