Reggie Bush calls out ESPN, asks for story to be taken down
Reggie Bush isn’t happy.
The former USC All-American and Heisman Trophy winner recently sat down for an interview with Playboy Magazine to discuss a wide range of topics, mostly involving the world of sports. Bush’s interest in coaching was among the questions asked of the college football legend during the interview.
Bush noted that he has no interest in coaching but is interested in guiding young players to help make decisions, most notably when it comes to handling finances and the importance of surrounding themselves with the right people to manage their affairs away from the football field.
ESPN took a segment of Bush’s Playboy interview and turned it into a story, giving it the title, “Reggie Bush says paying college athletes will ‘destroy some people'” and put the article on the homepage of ESPN.com.
Needless to say, the FOX Sports analyst wasn’t happy to see that.
Just hours after ESPN published their article, Bush issued his response, asking for the ESPN.com story to be taken down as the former USC star called out ESPN for “this bogus headline for clickbait” in his response.
Check it out below:
Dear @espn Please take this story down, I did not speak to you, I never gave you approval to write this story, this is not what I said nor the context I said it in, and your trying to use my name with this bogus headline for clickbait. Let’s not allow this to happen again… pic.twitter.com/GDHYUpPfAs
