Protests have taken place in several cities across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin

Throughout the sports media world, many journalists have responsibly shared their thoughts on the protests but ESPN NBA writer Chris Palmer found himself in some hot water over his tweets.

Palmer was the subject of criticism when he advocated for people to “burn” buildings on Thursday only to change his tune a few days later when angry protesters began looting near his house.

Palmer would later try to defend himself but not many people came to his defense.
