Companies are learning the hard way that going woke means going broke.

But things are so bad at ESPN that some of the network’s top employees are frustrated by the madness.

And ESPN executives are in panic mode after two of the network’s top hosts called out the woke agenda.

“Go Woke, Go Broke”

Businesses used to be about making money.

You could generally predict what a corporation was going to do based on the profit motive.

If doing something would increase revenue for the business, the odds were that they would go that route.

But other intentions now run corporate boards.

Today corporations are more worried about supporting the woke agenda than they are about fattening their pockets.

Just look at the suicide Anheuser-Busch committed over the trans issue.

Anheuser-Busch thought it would be a great idea to celebrate a transgender guy who thinks he is a girl named Dylan Mulvaney by putting him on their Bud Light cans.

But they ignored the cardinal rule of business, which is to never go against your core support of customers.

And to no one’s surprise, millions of Bud Light drinkers boycotted their products over the transgender partnership.

Anheuser-Busch has lost 17 percent of its sales since merging their brand with Mulvaney.

ESPN is another corporation that has gone all-in for the woke agenda to their own despair.

ESPN is even too woke for its own employees

ESPN has been shoving the woke agenda down the throats of their viewers on issues like Black Lives Matter and the transgender madness for the past several years.

But it looks like ESPN’s woke narrative has gone so far that now even their employees are speaking out about it.

First, Sage Steele stood up for women’s rights activist Riley Gaines by retweeting Megyn Kelly’s statement of support for her.

This was surprising since Steele is one of the most recognizable women on ESPN as a regular anchor.

Steele tweeted out a message that said, “stay strong @Riley_Gaines_ …you have more people than you know supporting you & standing up to this madness.”

Samantha Ponder, who made a name for herself at ESPN as a top NFL contributor, also retweeted a message from Riley Gaines.

“This would take away so many opportunities for biological women and girls in sports,” Ponder wrote. “It is a shame that we are needing to fight for the integrity of Title IX in 2023 and the reason it was needed in the first place.”

Two women at ESPN speaking up for Riley Gaines is a bad sign for the network.

When their woke agenda gets so bad that even their employees are calling it out, then they need to change their tone before it’s too late.

Is ESPN too woke?
