Shane Smith Offers Bill Simmons New Home at Vice
The Vice co-founder took to Twitter to enlist the ESPN personality.
Bill Simmons is welcome to join Vice Media after just losing his home at ESPN. Vice co-founder Shane Smith tweeted multiple times at the popular ESPN personality, asking Simmons to move to his company.
@BillSimmons you are a beautiful baby boy and we love you very much. Come to VICE we make you happy for oncet in our misery lives.— shane smith (@shanesmith30) May 8, 2015
After Twitter users suggested that Simmons join the Vice team, Smith replied encouraging Simmons to consider his company. Vice has recently annouced its plans for expansion with a slew of 20 new tv shows for it's upcoming 24-hour cable network.
Simmons has so far remained mum on the tweets, but Smith says he'll be waiting for Simmons' response.
Simmons has been one of ESPN's biggest stars. The network suspended him for three weeks by ESPN last fall after he called NFL commissioner Roger Goodell "a liar" on his B.S. Report podcast while discussing the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal.
