Comedian Artie Lange has proved once again to be a vile human being. This time his target was Cari Champion, host of ESPN’s First Take. Lange decided that it would be a great idea to tweet about his sexual fantasies involving ESPN’s female hosts, but he seemed to single out Champion. 

In his series of tweets, Lange described sexual scenarios he would enjoy with Champion, which included her being a slave. “I attempt to whip @CariChampion cuz she disrespected the Jefferson Plantation but she grabs whip & beats me,” is one highly edited tweet from Lange.

Lange then went on to tweet the following:

In response to Lange’s tweets, the hashtag #iSupportCari has trended on Twitter:

So far, Lange’s tweets have not been deleted and he has not issued an apology. But Jemele Hill, host of ESPN2’s His and Hers, tweeted her support for Champion:
