ESPN Cleveland host fired for saying Browns rookie on drugs

ESPN Cleveland host fired for saying Browns rookie on drugs

On Wednesday, a Cleveland radio personality became a former Cleveland radio personality after saying on-air that first-round Browns draft pick Jabrill Peppers was "on the lean and the molly", a reference to a cocktail containing prescription-strength cough syrup and the recreational drug MDMA. "Can I ask why you guys are burying this kid already?"

Lean is a drink made of promethazine with codeine, Sprite and Jolly Rancher candy.

The dialogue began with Parr insisting that Peppers won't make it beyond his first year in the NFL. "So I'm not going to get into that", Peppers said via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

Coast Guard securing Manila Bay for ASEAN Summit
Asked about China's sincerity towards completing the code, Duterte said "tensions at sea were the fault of the United States". The Asean Summit is a semi-annual meeting of the leaders of Asean's ten member states to discuss issues of mutual interest.

But Parr persisted: "You shouldn't". I've seen it first-hand from a different vantage point, and it's the same thing all over again.

The heated debate lasted almost an hour, officially becoming absurd when Parr randomly, and without proof, accused All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas of being "on the Lean, too". The radio host, Sabrina Parr, apparently was basing her claim on the fact that Peppers was dinged for having a diluted urine sample at the National Football League draft combine, which isn't necessarily a sign that someone is trying to mask drug use. The failed test resulted from a diluted urine sample, and he was automatically placed in the drug program. This morning, she mentioned the need for people to be able to take criticism and said she was just joking about Thomas, which doesn't really work as a defense.

Parr's employment with WKNR was terminated on Wednesday night. The station is one of the official radio partners of the Browns.
