The uproar over “racist” comments made by Fox News host Laura Ingraham has led to pressure being put on her show sponsors.
The whole situation started after Ingraham spoke about the criticism Drew Brees received after coming out with anti-kneeling remarks. The Fox News host supported the NFL star expressing his opinion saying, “he’s allowed to have his view about what kneeling and the flag means to him, I mean he’s a person, he has some worth I imagine. This is beyond football.”
Her view that Brees should be able to share his opinion on politics is interesting given her infamous 2018 comments to LeBron James and Kevin Durant. During a segment on her show, Ingraham spoke to James and Durant, “it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. LeBron and Kevin, you’re great players but nobody voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the politic commentary to yourself or as someone once said “Shut up and dribble”
