Jason Whitlock Out at Fox Sports, #BlackTwitter Reacts

jason-whitlock

*“So Jason Whitlock did all that cooning and they still fired his fat ass,” wrote one Twitter user in response to the announcement on Monday that the outspoken and controversial TV personality is no longer with Fox Sports.

For the past four years, Whitlock co-hosted the “Speak for Yourself”  show on FS1, but his contract expired Sunday and, it appears the network couldn’t be bothered with a renewal. By Monday, he was gone from the show and Black Twitter has been clowning him over it. 

“Friday was Jason Whitlock’s last day with FOX Sports,” the network said in a statement. “We thank Jason for all of his hard work and dedication to the network, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

As the time of this post, Whitlock has made no mention of his job loss online.

Whitlock’s most recent tweet was Sunday, in which he wrote: “God’s design. One mouth. Two ears. Two eyes. We should all do 4 times as much listening and observing as talking. Don’t be afraid to reflect, acquire knowledge and listen to others with more wisdom. Social media compels us to speak even when we have little of substance to say.”

Through the years, he has pissed off plenty of Black folks with his alleged bootlicking for his white paymasters. As such, Black Twitter has been mocking his job loss with Fox Sports, with one user writing, “Diamond & Silk, Sheriff Clark, and now this guy — all fired by Fox in a matter of months. What’s going on over there? They finally got tired of their resident minstrel show stars, realizing it’s an even worse look for them now in this political climate?”

Another added, “MF really thought he had shitted on his own race enough to be part of the club lol. Oops”

A third said, “Jason Whitlock somewhere trying to figure out a way to blame black people for police brutality.”

TV Writer Dave Shilling added, “I hope that after the events of this weekend, Jason Whitlock’s brand of performative, carnival nonsense will never find another home on television again.”

First diamond and silk, now Jason Whitlock. Like my grandpa once said, “ain’t no retirement plan for coonin,” wrote user Zel Moore

Another commenter added, “Tap dancing like a good boy didn’t get that contract renewed. Hate to see it.”

According to the New York Post, Whitlock “is believed to be looking into starting his own direct-to-consumer business.”
