Cancel culture is shockingly getting worse.
Saying the wrong thing could have dire long-term consequences.
Now an NBA owner could lose his team for one jaw-dropping reason.
Americans continue to lose their reputations and livelihoods based on the new “woke” doctrine created by the Left.
Doing or saying anything that runs too far afoul of the Left could be grounds for cancelation.
Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden found that out the hard way when he was forced to resign after decade-old private emails resurfaced.
Now Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver could be next on the chopping block.
Supposedly ESPN, which has become unbearably woke, is planning a massive hit piece against Sarver that could ruin him.
🚨 Breaking: The NBA is preparing for a massive story accusing #Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism, sexism and sexual harassment in a series of incidents, sources say. With enough evidence to support such claims, there’s a real chance the league would forcibly remove Sarver.

There is precedent for an owner being forced out.
Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was strong-armed into selling his team after his mistress recorded him making racially insensitive and offensive comments.
That’s how Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer gained control of the franchise.
So if the allegations against Sarver are explosive enough, he definitely could be on the way out.
Sarver denies the allegations in the yet-to-be-released hit piece, and he and team officials are putting out statements to get ahead of the impending bad news cycle.
“While I can’t begin to know how to respond to some of the vague suggestions made by mostly anonymous voices, I can certainly tell you that some of the claims I find completely repugnant to my nature and to the character of the Suns/Mercury workplace and I can tell you they never, ever happened.”
General manager James Jones, who is black, defended Sarver in a brief statement.
“None of what’s been said describes the Robert Sarver I know, respect and like — it just doesn’t.”
Ever since the death of George Floyd, any statements perceived as racist could be career-threatening and reputation-killing.
The Suns also released an official organizational statement:
“Documentary evidence in our possession and eyewitness accounts directly contradict the reporter’s accusations, and we are preparing our response to his questions…We urge everyone not to rush to judgement here. Especially based on lies, innuendo, and a false narrative to attack our organization and its leadership.”
The Phoenix Suns lost the NBA over the summer in heartbreaking fashion.
This is not the news they were expecting to deal with going into the 2021-22 season.
