Within hours of learning that Rush Limbaugh died from lung cancer, ESPN play-by-play man Mark Jones started hitting the like button on some less than kind Tweets about the talk radio host, according to Outkick.

Limbaugh was a controversial figure and known for sharing harsh opinions about race, gender and politics that most people strongly disagreed with, yet a tweet celebrating the death of anyone is extremely uncalled for.

Jones withdrew his support of the tweet in which used the phrase “rot in hell.” Outkick’s Bobby Burack catalogued a number of questionable tweets and likes from Jones to show that the ESPN personality has a habit of supporting and sharing some harsh opinions about people he disagrees with politically.

Outkick reached out to ESPN for response, but did not receive comment.

  1. Bobby Burack? Bored in life or something? The world is a better place today. Society needs to stop making excuses for the hate. Treat others as they treat you. Nobody is genuinely crying.

  2. I am “SHOCKED” they did not respond to outkick. Jones is also the voice of the Sacramento Kings on local TV Limbaugh was a popular host in Sacramento before he took his show national. If I was Jones I would be worried about backlash from the Kings fans more than I would ESPN

  3. Mark Jones is a perfect example of the blatant ‘Double Standard’ that exists ‘with what one can get away with and can not’! How many sports broadcasters have been ‘fired’ over the last year for saying less or liking less or showing support for those that are being unfairly ripped.
