ESPN's Bomani Jones Wore A 'Caucasians' Shirt On TV And Twitter Lit Up
Bomani Jones had not been back at ESPN's headquarters in four years, but he made sure his homecoming was noteworthy.
Jones, who usually works from the network's studios in Miami, traveled to Bristol this week, where he was filling in as a guest host on the popular morning radio show "Mike & Mike."
The radio show is also simulcast on TV, so you could imagine the reaction when viewers noticed a little novelty about Jones' attire.

The shirt Jones wore is an obvious parody of the jersey worn by baseball's Cleveland Indians.
In an article for Sporting News published on Monday, Cory Collins referred to the mascot as "Major League Baseball's most disgusting burlesque masquerading as a Native American man."
Clearly, the logo is controversial, so you know Jones' parody got people talking.
