The Caitlyn Jenner speech at the ESPYS touched some and outraged others.

Philadelphia sportscaster Howard Eskin had a harsh take on ESPN giving the Arthur Ashe Award to Jenner, claiming it was just for the ratings and ultimately "embarrassed the name of Arthur Ashe." The award is for courage and the sportscaster didn't feel the former Olympian exemplified that.


He later deleted the tweet and tried again.

He later continued in conversations with Twitter users to defend his comments regarding Jenner and other transgender people.
