Rachel Nichols has been at the center of a controversy since Sunday. A year-old audio recording was leaked to the News York Times that showed Nichols upset over her ESPN colleague Maria Taylor being given the hosting job for the NBA Finals. Nichols felt ESPN was taking away her job and giving it to Taylor, who is black, to mollify the race police as a coverup for the network’s past treatment of minorities.
While a lot of ESPN employees have voiced their opinions, Jalen Roses’ daughter, Mariah Rose had a lot more to say and took it to social media.
Rose criticized Nichols in a few ways throughout the video. She is claiming that Nichols got her job at ESPN through nepotism. Rose also said Nichols should have directed her anger at ESPN rather than Taylor.
Nichols has apologized for her actions, but it appears Rose isn’t hearing any of it.
