A Spanish-language broadcaster for the Carolina Panthers, says he felt pressured to leave his job because the team is upset that he is a supporter of President Donald Trump.
Moreno told the paper that he began openly supporting Trump on his personal Twitter account this Spring, and at one point, he was tagged along with several other Trump supporters in a tweet.
The announcer said that he was contacted about his tweets by Eric Fiddleman — the Panthers’ radio and television affiliate manager and Spanish-language radio general manager.
Moreno said that Fiddleman told him to remove information pertaining to his work for the team from his personal Twitter and other social media accounts.
Fiddleman reportedly contacted Moreno again in the summer, but this time to tell him to stop his political tweets.
I am well aware that the silent majority is relying on brave people to help voice their concerns. You can always count on me.🇺🇲
I also want to thank Théoden Janes, of the Charlotte Observer, for sharing my story.
I stand by every word that I have said regarding this matter.
