From my hometown of Memphis comes word of yet another victim of the cancel culture mob.
Joey Sulipeck, a beloved and longtime meteorologist at television station Fox 13, has been permanently sidelined.
Last May he was taken off the air because of a tweet he wrote during the NBA playoffs.
Sulipeck, who is a diehard Memphis Grizzlies fan, rebuked Draymond Green, a player for the Golden State Warriors.
“Draymond Green runs his knuckle-dragging open mouth ALL GAME LONG, but mild-mannered Kyle Anderson disputes one call and gets ejected?” Sulipeck wrote. “Next level jackassery.”
His observations were shared by most Memphis Grizzly fans — but not Commercial Appeal rabble-rouser Evan Barnes.
Mr. Barnes, who writes with a chip on his shoulder, was profoundly triggered by Sulipeck’s post and he placed a woke fatwa on the weather man’s career.
“Emotions are high right now among teams and fans over the play in question but this right here? @joeysulipeck—unacceptable,” wrote Commercial Appeal reporter Evan Barnes. “Memo to @FOX13Memphis—talk to your mans and check him. This is over the line and I won’t stand for it. This is bullsh-t.”
The Commercial Appeal, a failing newspaper with a dwindling readership, is owned by Gannett – the national newspaper chain.
So it wasn’t long until the story went national — putting Sulipeck in the crosshairs of the race agitators.
Steve Kerr, the head coach of the Warriors and a human piece of excrement, piled on.
“Does it surprise me that a weatherman would tweet a slur at Draymond in 2022? Not in the slightest,” Kerr said. “This is America. This is how we operate.”
Anyone who’s watched 30 seconds of Draymond Green playing on the court knew exactly what Sulipeck was talking about.
STOP! Why are you still using ATT and Verizon Wireless? They promote the cancel culture mob. That’s why I’ve made the switch to Patriot Mobile, America’s only Christian Conservative wireless carrier. Click here for info!
Sulipeck deleted his Twitter account and apologized – both of which were mistakes. The cancel culture mob doesn’t want your apology. They want your head on a stake.
“Anyone who knows me knows what I am. Race is never an issue to me. To anyone who was offended, I apologize but there was no ill intent,” he wrote.
Thousands of viewers both black and white came to Sulipeck’s defense, but their pleas to keep him on the air fell on deaf ears.
In effect, he was fired for tweeting while white.
The management at FOX13 in Memphis – along with its parent company – should be ashamed. They have committed an egregious act of next level jackassery.
