[Blind Gossip] While everyone was publicly smiling and very accepting of one of the featured recipients at the ESPY Awards, the unofficial chatter of those in attendance was quite the opposite!
There were a number of things that people were unhappy about. One prominent athlete was shaking his head and named a female athlete who he thought was more deserving of the award. Another was annoyed that the honoree “brought the plastic circus to town” with them.
Another was asked to be photographed with the honoree. He refused, saying that he didn’t want to “be part of their publicity stunt.” Another was whispering about how the award was “bought and paid for” and how it “takes the shine off” the event.
[BG Note: Pictured is Danielle Green, a former basketball player and Iraq War veteran who received The Pat Tillman Award.)
[Optional] Do you think the honoree deserved the award?
