ESPN’s SportsCenter Deletes Tweet Praising Fidel Castro’s Love of Sports

The Twitter account for ESPN’s SportsCenter sent out a tweet Sunday about Fidel Castro’s love of sports that was criticized for painting the Cuban dictator in a positive light.

“Savior and scourge, Fidel Castro was many things to many people,” the now-deleted tweet read. “One thing all can agree on: He loved his sports.”

Shockingly, a lot of people on Twitter didn’t appreciate SportCenter‘s humanization of a brutal despot.
