ESPN made Baker Mayfield’s crotch grab so much worse by blurring it

New, comment

Oh no ...

Someone at ESPN decided that Baker Mayfield grabbing his crotch had to be censored for delicate eyes, and they made it way worse.

They took a man grabbing his clothed crotch, and by blurring it implied he did something way worse. Sure, Mayfield had to issue an apology because people were upset at him for taunting Kansas in a blowout win, and that’s OK — but blurring it? If you just saw this photo and not what happened you’d honestly think he got naked on the sideline.

Okay, so ESPN decided the crotch grab had to be blurred. Now let’s see how they teased this upcoming moment to viewers.
