Popular Hispanic NFL Announcer Out of a Job Over His Support for Trump

By Johnathan Jones

Published September 15, 2020 at 2:42pm

One half of the Carolina Panthers’ longtime Spanish-language broadcasting duo is out of a job, and he says the breakup occurred after the team didn’t approve of his support for President Donald Trump in his personal life.

Apparently, in the new, woke NFL, there isn’t a place for a Trump supporter in a broadcasting booth, even if that person is a bilingual, Mexican-born immigrant.

The Charlotte Observer recently spoke with Luis Moreno Jr., who told the outlet he has parted ways with the Panthers after management became upset over his penchant for sharing pro-Trump messages on his personal Twitter account.

On his support for the president, Moreno said he “found out that there are a lot of things that are happening that I wasn’t aware of that make me support him.”

He has been calling games in Spanish for the Panthers with his uncle, Jaime Moreno, since 2010.

The Moreno duo has brought an enthusiastic and distinctive fútbol feel to American football in Charlotte:

But politics got in the way of the decade-old relationship, at least for the Panthers, he said.

Moreno said the dustup began in April when he first shared his support for Trump on Twitter.

Panthers radio and television affiliate manager Eric Fiddleman asked him to remove all references to the Panthers on his social media account over his Trump support, and Moreno complied, he said.

But that wasn’t the end of it.

Untethered by being connected to his job online, Moreno became more active in expressing his support for Trump’s re-election on Twitter.

He was again contacted by Fiddleman, but he said he told his boss, “If what they want me to do is stop supporting the president, I’m not gonna do that.”

Moreno said he went up the ladder, attempting to reach Steven Drummond, the Panthers’ vice president of communications, but his calls and emails went unreturned.

Fiddleman made it clear, though, that Drummond also wanted the social media activity to stop.

As an independent contractor, Moreno felt he had done enough to appease his higher-ups with the NFL franchise.

https://twitter.com/theodenjanes/status/130559735205767169 4? ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E130559735205767 1694%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.westernjournal.com%2 Fpopular-hispanic-nfl-announcer-job-support-trump%2F

The rift created was insurmountable.

“Basically what I told [Fiddleman], I said, ‘Listen … I’m not even under contract right now. I am not willing to participate in this project anymore if I’m going to be censored. So unless they call me, I’m not going to do it anymore. Because I am not OK with them censoring my freedom of speech in support of the president,’” he told The Observer.

The team apparently had few reservations about letting him walk away from signing another contract.

The Observer reported that Fiddleman didn’t respond to a text message and Drummond declined to comment.

Moreno would have liked for things to have played out differently, but he said he plans to move on to another venture, which he said he would wait to do until he knows the outcome of the November election.

“I’m hurt,” he said, “because this has nothing to do with my performance on-air. This has nothing to do with how good I am at what I do. I’m one of the best, and I’ll put myself against anybody in the country when it comes to what I do in Spanish.”

He added, “None of my support for the president was done on any of their social-media pages, it was never done on any of the airtime — whether it was a podcast or a broadcast or anything related to the Panthers. This was solely on my personal time on my personal accounts.”

Moreno lived in Mexico until he was 14 and only recently became a U.S. citizen.

He told the newspaper he is excited about voting for the first time on Nov. 3.

“I think that it goes without saying that this is one of the most important elections in our lifetime,” he said.


Poster Comment:

After eight years of the Hafrican in the White Hut blacks were saying they were no better off, so they voted for Trump. Now black unemployment levels have dropped and many of them will be voting for him again.

Now it looks as if many Hispanics will be doing the same.

Remember last election Trump beat Jeb Bush in his home state of Florida in the Primary.

You simply need to look at what the Chinkernese are doing to the Uighurs to see the whole truth about suppression of minorities. ;)

Yeah, but that's just a tad different -- the Uiyghwuiers are Muslims, and every country should properly be driving them out!

MUSLIMS ARE EVIL. Sure -- there are nice Muslims. There are nice con artists, too -- it's how they get it done.

Termination of one's employment due to political beliefs is a legally actionable termination. No one can be legally fired due to any number of issues, and it's not just gender or gender orientation and all that. Political affiliation is well established as a protected aspect of individual rights in the workplace.

Someone, sometime, is going to take this to court and win big time.

I agree wholeheartedly, and it likely will not even go to the Supreme Court. ;)

China was sending Muslim Chinese into Afghanistan to fight the U.S. troops there.

Does that tell us anything about the true intentions of the Chi-coms? ;)

In the old days the Sikhs would beat on Chinese peons with bamboo poles to keep them moving.

Gun powder was an invention of the Chinese too. That was brought back to Europe during the silk trade by Marco Polo. ;)

Yeah, humanity really REALLY sux.

Since my last post above I've remembered why the chinks would tyrannize each other. One of the least-noticed yet most important documents of the 20th century:

Well established? Are you sure about that?

This lawyer lady says that federal law does not prohibit discrimination based on political views and affiliations, but some states do protect employees from certain types of political discrimination.

Chinese cannot own property in China since it is all owned by the Party. So the Chinese come here to purchase real estate and other properties.

They own old Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in NYC and supposedly are planning on turning the top 10 floors into Condos. That is really a very capitalist idea. ;)

The sale to the Chinese Government apparently happened on February23, 2018.

It seems the Chinese Government stepped in when the previous owners (Anbang) were on the verge of insolvency.

According to the article they plan to renovate and turn 3/4 of the rooms into apartments. Not as much work for the room service then.

So it seems I erred in saying it was regular Chinese citizens who have bought the hotel.

Apparently, Anbang chairman Wu Xiaohui is being being prosecuted on suspicion of committing white-collar crimes.

There are certain high rollers who are Chinese, like Jack Ma.

I seriously doubt that Paris Hilton would sell out the Hilton Hotel chain. ;)

Mark David Chapman shot John Lennon. He was locked up in a state prison east of Buffalo and has since been denied parole on eleven occasions. :-/
