It's not often you see a media member trend because of the outrage of their suspension. But it's also not often you see a major media organization drop the hammer on one of its most beloved reporters for something seemingly innocuous. Yet here we are: Bruce Feldman is on the outs with ESPN, and a social uprising on Twitter is afoot. College football fans are a passionate bunch, and when one of their own quality reporters goes down, they rally.
And rally they did. Here's what the trending topics on Twitter look like. That's Feldman, above Harry Potter and below Sexual Fear. This is an odd list of topics, but nevertheless!
Since the news of Feldman's suspension broke, social media has been ablaze with words of encouragement for Feldman and words of condemnation for ESPN. Sports fans are angry, and rightfully so.
The #FreeBruce hashtag has taken over, and many are suggesting new landing spots for Feldman. You know, places that will treat him right, not suspend him for simply helping to write a seemingly harmless book and places that will let him speak his mind.
Where in the world could he find such a place?
