Did Caitlyn Jenner's Reps Strong Arm ESPN Into Bestowing Her ESPY Honours?

July 16, 2015 2 min read

It has been reported that Caitlyn Jenner's representatives pushed ESPN into naming her the recipient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Reports have said that Jenner's reps approached ESPN with the idea while hammering out details of her Diane Sawyer 20/20 interview. When the talks hit a roadblock, Jenner's team threatened to pull out of the 20/20 interview. Of course, as we know now, things were worked out. And now ABC, ESPN and their owner Disney, have the biggest story of the year all to themselves. There is a little debate about the timeline, however. The 20/20 interview took place and was aired in April and ESPY producer Maura Mandt told Sports Illustrated that the decision to name Jenner the recipient wasn't decided until May after a consultation with the Ashe Foundation. If this type of bullying did happen, it is pretty sad. But here's the thing: it is over now. The show is over, the award has been given. Done deal. However it was that Jenner came to be named to this award can't be our focus. Our focus should be her words. Her message. That's the key here. I don't know if this is how the deal got done (although it wouldn't shock me -- corporations and reps do all sorts of things to serve themselves), and if it is, I'm disappointed but I refuse to let this be the story that gets remembered. Maybe there was bullying, maybe there were 'more' deserving recipients, but her message is more than deserving and that is the real point. How can you watch this and not see a deserving struggle? When all is said and done, are you really going to make how she got to the stage the issue? https://youtu.be/112W8q8XXKw Do you follow us on Instagram?
