What happens when you say something that is technically correct, then completely misguided by someone on social media? If you’re Doug Adler, you lose your job, your career, your voice and damn near your life. Doug’s story is a frightening one for anyone in the media with a microphone in front of them. Describing play by Venus Williams at the Australian open in 2017 did it. Now nearly three years later, ESPN has settled with him. His story is one that should be told over and over. “Branded” incorrectly as a racist, hear how he has grown from the experience and how one horribly incorrect and even malicious tweet destroyed so much of what he worked so long to build.
