Maria Taylor tweets about 'dark times' in first public comments addressing ESPN's Rachel Nichols fallout

The controversy is centered on leaked audio of Nichols, who is white, suggesting that Taylor, who is Black, rose to her position at ESPN because of a diversity effort rather than her merits. Nichols, seemingly unaware that she failed to turn off a video camera, made the comments in the NBA bubble in 2020, upset that Taylor was hosting the network's NBA Finals pregame coverage instead of her.
