Black on black hate is in full effect…SMH!

ESPN Fires Hugh Douglas For Racial Comments About Co-Host Michael Smith

Word is that Hugh had a tank full of liquor at the time of the confrontation, but we all know that a drunk tongue tells no tales…

According to TMZ reports:

Former NFL superstar Hugh Douglas has just been FIRED from his gig on an ESPN show in the wake of reports he called his co-host an “Uncle Tom.”

Douglas — a former Philadelphia Eagles defensive stud — had co-hosted ESPN’s “Numbers Never Lie” … along with Michael Smith.

But according to several reports, Douglas and Smith got into a heated altercation at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention in Orlando last Tuesday …with Douglas allegedly hurling the racially charged insult at Smith, who is black.

Douglas never confirmed the incident … but ESPN had previously told media outlets they were “aware there was a disagreement” between the two men.

Moments ago, ESPN took action — 86’ing Douglas from the network, effective immediately.

Only question we have for Hugh is…was it REALLY worth it?
