"Is It Me Or Has ESPN Been Taken Over By Wetbacks?" Viewers React To Tonight's WBC ESPN Deportes Simulcast

Illustration for article titled Is It Me Or Has ESPN Been Taken Over By Wetbacks? Viewers React To Tonights WBC ESPN Deportes Simulcast

MLB Network has exclusive U.S. rights to broadcast the World Baseball Classic, but those rights begin and end with the English language. Lacking compelling content for a slow Sunday night, ESPN elected to use its loophole in owning Spanish-language rights to simulcast its ESPN Deportes feed of tonight's Dominican Republic-Puerto Rico game on the network's flagship station. Any time the WWL introduces a new audience to content usually found on another station, people react poorly. And ESPN's no stranger to stirring up a racist hornet's nest, either. So here's a sampling of what people are saying online about the broadcast, which we'll remind you cannot be shown in English on ESPN (and is being shown in English just a few channels away on MLB Net).
