The NBA fired longtime photographer Bill Baptist for posting a meme of Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris amid claims that the “Joe and the Hoe” meme was “disrespectful.”
Bill Baptist worked for the Houston Rockets for more than 30 years. He was pulled from the NBA bubble in Orlando and fired after leftists complained about the meme he posted on Facebook.
Baptist later issued a public apology in a statement to a Houston media outlet:
“I deeply regret posting on my Facebook page a phrase that I saw and copied from others as a sample of some people’s reactions to Biden’s selection of Senator Harris as his choice for VP. The phrase I posted does not reflect my personal views at all.”
“I should not have been so insensitive to post the statements by others. I sincerely apologize to all of those who have rightfully been offended and I have taken the post down from my FB page. It was a horrible mistake on my part.”
Bill Baptist is correct: Countless Twitter users had tweeted about “Joe and the Hoe” for days — well before he posted his meme.

The “hoe” moniker is a reference to longstanding suggestions that Kamala Harris slept with powerful married men to promote her career.
One of Harris’ alleged ex-lovers is former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.
Brown, a Democrat, has admitted having an extramarital affair with Harris in the 1990s. Brown also confessed that he helped Kamala’s career while sleeping with her.
The Left is suddenly clutching their pearls over the “Joe and the Hoe” meme. However, they have gleefully mocked First Lady Melania Trump as a “hoe” for years. Same with Ivanka Trump. Why has no one been fired?

The Left has been tearing down statues and burning down Democrat-controlled cities for months, citing slavery, but downplay Kamala Harris’ connection to slave-owners.
Kamala’s father, Donald Harris — a Stanford professor — wrote an article in a Jamaican magazine several years ago, bragging that he was descended from Hamilton Brown, who was one of the largest slave owners in Jamaica.
Kamala’s dad wrote in Jamaica Global that they are the direct descendants of prominent slave owner Hamilton Brown.
This revelation would immediately disqualify a Republican candidate. Instead, the left-wing media are downplaying this.
As it is, many black Americans and Democrats do not support Harris.
Civil-rights attorney Leo Terrell is a lifelong Democrat who plans to vote for President Trump in November. Terrell torched Harris as an unqualified, “affirmative-action” token candidate.
“Kamala Harris was selected for two reasons: Because she’s a woman and because of her race,” Terrell said. “That’s called affirmative action. She’s not qualified to be vice president. She’s not qualified to be one heartbeat away from the highest office in the land.”
Terrell remarked: “This woman has gone so far-left. If you like your health care, she wants to take it away. She believes in socialized medicine. She has no principles or scruples. She called Joe Biden a racist. That’s [the only thing] she’s correct about. But she shot down President Trump and Tim Scott’s proposal for criminal justice reform. She shot it down because it came from Republicans. We have to save this country. This election is very important.”
