Radio host fired for saying NFL pick is ‘on lean and the molly’
Jabrill Peppers was the Cleveland Browns’ first round draft pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, even though he had tested positive in March when he took a drug test.
ESPN Radio Cleveland host Sabrina Parr criticized the decision on “The Really Big Show” on ESPN 850 on Wednesday morning, saying, “He’s on the lean and the molly.”
“The guy’s not going to make it. He’s not going to make it through the season,” she said before adding, “He’s another Josh Gordon … I’ve seen it first-hand from a different vantage point, and it’s the same thing all over again. How are you already high out of your mind, and you’ve only been here for a week.”
Tony Rizzo and Aaron Goldhammer both tried to get Parr to backtrack, but instead, she kept right on, even suggesting that 10-time Pro Bowler Joe Thomas was “on the lean.”
“I guess I can’t say certain things,” Parr said, and one of the co-hosts interrupted to say, “No. You can’t.”
WKNR announced on Wednesday night that Parr had been terminated.
