ESPN needs to leave to cool tweeting to a professional like myself.
Just tweet highlights and Stephen A. Smith screaming. Stick to what you know, don’t try to be hip because you aren’t. Someone intern who probably loves Euphoria probably thought this would be a dope Tweet, and if it came from anyone but ESPN, it might have been, but alas, it didn’t turn out too well for them, and they had to make a big public apology.
“The content posted was not in alignment with ESPN’s brand and we removed it.”
If you haven’t watched the season finale of Euphoria, then stop reading now because there will be spoilers to what happened to Ashtray on the episode.
Poor, poor Fez. He’s just a kid with dreams of running away with Lexi to do some “Little House on the Prairie shit” on a farm and have three kids born exactly a year and a half apart. While Custer attempts to get Fez and Ashtray to confess to Mouse’s murder, a wide-eyed Faye valiantly throws him off course by pretending Laurie was the murderer. But the cops are already on their way by the time Ash stabs Custer in the neck. Fez tries to take the fall, but Ash ducks into the bathroom with a militia for a shoot-off that leaves Fez wounded and Ash dead.
Ash is only 13, and he murdered a bunch of people, including cops, in the show.
Not exactly what Disney is trying to portray for their brand.
It was still funny nevertheless. I wonder if they will let tweets like that slide on the new Andscape site. The watered-down version of The Undefeated.
Whatever the case, Twitter decided to let them have it before and after they deleted the tweets.
