ESPN Apologizes After Getting Duped by a Ballsack Sports Report

via This Just In on ESPN

ESPN issued a public apology for running with a manipulated Ballsack Sports quote stemming from a Ja Morant interview with Taylor Rooks at Bleacher Report:

Here’s the ESPN clip they’re apologizing for on This Just In:

And here is the original Ja Morant quote, followed by the doctored version:

Alright are we caught up? There’s nothing more I love than people who take themselves way too seriously getting duped. Jacoby having to deliver that statement in his finest Ron Burgundy suit is hilarious. ESPN still can’t figure out this darn internet. Some producer just saw this professional-looking graphic every sports media company uses and jotted it down on their rundown sheet.. Stick to what you know ESPN; pranks and random user generated content.

Take a look at SportsCenter’s IG:

Four clips of Richard Jefferson reffing Summer League, three prank videos, and a couple of Little League highlights. These sports social media accounts went to shit as soon as corporations started mandating engagement targets. Stuart Scott is rolling over in his grave watching what he built turned into a sideshow.

How about Ballsack Sports though? From a random sports troll account, to Daryl Morey mentioning it during a Mikey Miss interview, and now it’s wreaked havoc on the World Wide Leader and more:

Kendrick Perkins again:

Super Bowl winning QBs wives:

Nobody is safe from the taint.
