Stewart was fired by ESPN because of gay slur tweets from 2012 that she says she long deleted. She also acknowledged that “While I regret the language I tweeted over a decade ago, I don’t regret standing up for myself against vile, threatening, and misogynistic attacks from men who were threatened by a woman daring to attempt to make a living in the overwhelming male sports gambling industry.”

She went on to add that “I’m disappointed that ESPN allowed the same misogynistic trolls harassing me online a decade ago, to continue to impact my life a decade later.”

Here are some of the tweets that were dug up against Stewart:

She also reportedly had sent some tweets over the past year questioning COVID-19 lockdowns that ESPN apparently flagged.

I would assume she gets another chance to prove herself but a massive break like this from a major corporation is probably not going to just show up on her doorstep after her firing.
