ESPN suspends columnist from Twitter after 'First Take' criticism
ESPN has suspended columnist Bill Simmons from Twitter for a few days after he criticized the network’s controversial “First Take” show, according to Deadspin.
The site reports that Simmons was told to lie low for a few days and hasn’t tweeted since Monday.
Here’s a look at the two tweets that reportedly got him into trouble:
