ESPN's Katie Nolan Calls Donald Trump A 'F*cking Stupid Person'

Not Released

Katie Nolan could be putting ESPN's new political policy to the test by calling President Donald Trump a"f--- stupid person.”

ESPN apologized for Hill's comments but didn't fire her. Hill was suspended for two weeks in October for violating the network's social media guidelines. "It had been said before, and unfortunately, people comb through your replies now".

The sports network said it addressed the matter with Nolan, but it will not punish her beyond that, TMZ reported Friday.

ESPN declined to comment to Sporting News about Nolan, but is known to handle controversial situations on a case-by-case basis.

During an appearance on Viceland's "Desus & Mero", Katie Nolan and hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero discussed whether the "thumbs up" sign is now a white supremacist symbol "because Trump always does this [thumbs up] with his thing".

"Commentaries on relevant sports-related issues are appropriate, but we should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians or political parties", the policy reads, adding that employees should avoid "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric".

She also appeared to use another offensive word to describe Trump, but that word was bleeped out of the broadcast. "Back it up. Back it up".

But her most interesting moment in the interview came when she called Donald Trump a "fu*king stupid person", a brief correction from what she initially called the 45th President of the United States.

The network has already received a lot of backlash for how it handles political commentary. And the Emmy-winning Nolan, who joined ESPN from rival Fox Sports three months ago, was clearly having fun. At the time of publication, it hasn't issued a statement.
