KEY POINTS

  • ESPN has fired Paul Pierce after sharing a racy video on social media
  • A porn website is rumored to be offering Pierce a job
  • The former NBA champion has shown no signs of regret

The end of Paul Pierce’s ESPN job could mark the beginning of a new jouney.

Pierce instantly became a hot subject on the internet following his scandalous Instagram live video the past weekend.

In the clip, the 10-time All-Star could be seen drinking liquor while being surrounded by what appeared to be hired strippers.

World-renowned sports channel ESPN, where Pierce works as an NBA analyst, has decided to part ways with him as an immediate response to the said viral footage.

Upon learning about Pierce’s situation, a porn site called “CamSoda” has reportedly reached out to the former Boston Celtics star.

Apparently, the company is considering Pierce for a job with an offer of “up to $250,000,” Total Pro Sports reported.

Pierce, meanwhile, is not lamenting the consequences of his act. Shortly after news broke that ESPN has sent him a pink slip, he seems to be optimistic when he referenced his ordeal on Twitter.

Prior to the Instragam live video, Pierce announced his partnership with Bushmills Irish Whiskey, a company that has vowed to become active in its marketing campaigns.

Pierce’s unregretful comments even suggest that his Instagram live video was just a publicity stunt as he has embraced his new role for the whiskey brand.

“My partnership with the Celtics is a lifelong partnership and when you bring in new partnerships, like Bushmills to the Celtics, then it’s a partnership of mine also,” Pierce told Forbes.

“I’m excited to have them as part of the family,” he continued. “It’s an iconic brand to go with an iconic franchise and one of its more iconic players. We just thought it was a great fit. This whiskey is a part of my culture in retirement now along with cigars, especially on game night with some friends. This was just a great match.”
