(Newser) – Apparently, Paul Shirley did some work for ESPN, but after his much-reviled comments on the Haitian earthquake that position is no longer open to him. The ex-NBA player “was a part-time freelance contributor,” the network says in a statement. “The views he expressed on another site of course do not at all reflect our company's views on the Haiti relief efforts. He will no longer contribute to ESPN.” Read Shirley's offending diatribe here.
