On social media people roasted Richard Jefferson and Kendrick Perkins defending Rachel Nichols apology overzealously. Some people theorized they were possibly forced to be very supportive on air, because they didn’t want to lose their jobs. In essence they were put in a jam, and possibly decided to make the smart business decision instead of saying what they really felt. The black woman who sent the racist audio of Rachel Nichols to Maria Taylor was punished by ESPN, so they possibly didn’t want to suffer the same fate.
