'Cmon guys…. We don’t *ALL* look alike,' Kimberly Martin said

Black ESPN reporter, Kimberley Martin, reacted angrily toward NPR after they used a picture of her in the place of former ESPN host Maria Taylor.

The outlet talked about Talor leaving ESPN following a failed agreement on a contract extension.

Taylor’s exit came just a week after SPN reporter Rachel Nichols's remarks suggested she was promoted over Nichols due to concern about diversity.

NPR’s tweet, which embarrassingly for them, used the wrong picture, said:

"ESPN host Maria Taylor will leave the sports network after they failed to agree on a contract extension."

'We apologize for the error,' NPR wrote in a tweet

“It comes weeks after remarks by veteran ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols were leaked in which she suggested that Taylor was promoted because she is Black,” the tweet ended.

Kimberly Martin, who was used in the picture, said:

“Cmon guys…. We don’t *ALL* look alike.” The tweet also included a GIF of her.

“I promise you, @NPR… That’s *not* Maria Taylor. It’s me,” Martin said in a follow-up tweet blasting NPR.

Instead of accepting the mistake, NPR decided to blame the Associated Press.

She then attached a screenshot of the article showing a picture of herself to prove they had made a mistake.

The caption read:

“ESPN reporter Maria Taylor prior to an NFL football game between the Chicago Bears and the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 18, 2020.”

Instead of accepting the mistake, NPR decided to blame the Associated Press.

The news organization tweeted:

“Because of an error in an AP caption, this post previously featured an image of ESPN reporter Kimberley Martin instead of Maria Taylor."

"We apologize for the error.”
