ESPN Removes Commentator Due To His Name

Later this season, ESPN is scheduled to provide commentary for a college football game down in Virginia. If you're familiar with a couple of weekends ago, some seriously racist stuff went down in Charlottesville, which has called for the destruction of statues of confederate soldiers -- quite possibly the most notable being Robert E. Lee.

With all that happening, ESPN decided to pull one of their commentators from calling that Virginia football game. Why? Because his name, no lie, is Robert Lee.

Do you agree with ESPN making the switch due to all of the issues going on in the area recently, or did they, in a sense, let the "terrorists" win by not sticking with their original schedule?
