Jason Whitlock was none too happy following his departure from ESPN so he decided to do a little venting on Twitter this morning. Included in his rant were claims of double-standards and shots at Deadspin for their scathing piece on him.
Ever the lightning rod that he is, Whitlock’s rant spurred a bunch of scorching hot takes on Twitter along with some humor about the entire situation. Let’s take a look at the carnage.

Lord. Whitlock criticizing ESPN for encouraging black commentators to critique black athletes is like Cheney calling Obama a war-monger.

Best thing about Whitlock getting fired is that #pti is watchable even when Tony or Michael is out. Whitlock was an instant channel changer.
