Here’s the problem with Mia Khalifa and her sports gig: she isn’t remotely intelligent or witty.
Sure, she may be passionate, and yeah, she may know her sports stuff, but without the nuance and skill it takes to entertainingly get your point across, your just another regular person with a sports opinion.
That’s what Mia Khalifa is: a person with a sports opinion. The only reason she got a “sports show” in the first place is because she used to be a pornstar, and Complex thought, “Woah, a pornstar who vaguely knows sports?! That’s SO edgy and for the culture! Sign her!” But what they didn’t realize is that her sport’s opinions are trash and her delivery is even worse.
So it should come as absolutely NO surprise that her take about Hayward’s injury was not only tasteless but so unfunny it’s physically cringe-worthy. Like seriously, imagine drafting this Tweet and actually thinking its funny.
Once Khalifa realized how patently stupid her Tweet was, she predictably tried back-tracking like the spineless jellyfish she is:
“Color commenting” LMFAOOOOOO. Who do you think you are, Mia, Ernie Johnson?
Luckily, Twitter was not about to let her live this one down, as everyone from Al Horford sister to the founder of Complex to the casual NBA fan chimed in to let her know how f*cking stupid she sounded:
The sooner Complex stops giving this chickenhead a megaphone for her bullshit, the better. DC sports girl my ass.
