Former ESPN personality, Rob Parker was fired by the network for his comments about Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. RG3 spoke about the incident in an interview for the September issue of GQ Magazine.
“I don’t think it’s right to make fun of Rob Parker for losing his job. There’s some wrong in what he said, but there’s some wrong in him losing his job as well. And I don’t want people to think that I, you know, that I’m trying to stick it to Rob Parker, or that I’m happy he lost his job. But I was very unhappy with the things he said. I mean, why did he say that?”
Also, in the interview, RG3 made it a point to play the song “Change the Game” by Waco, TX rapper, Quistar, who happens to be a high school friend of Griffin. Griffin showed a “big satisfied grin” after mouthing the lyrics:
I’m labeled a thug because I come from the gutter / Robert made it out now he a cornball brother—what? / That was such a stupid argument / Now Rob Parker working at the supermarket, ha!!!
Though RG3 may not agree with ESPN firing Parker, it seems like a small part of him got a little joy from a friend giving Parker the same treatment.
