Friday Night Lights Creator Slammed for Cheap ESPYs Shot at Caitlyn Jenner

Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg is under fire from fans for a cheap shot he took at Caitlyn Jenner's courage during the 2015 ESPY Awards.
The Lone Survivor director took to his Instagram to voice his displeasure with the gold medalist winning the prestigious Arthur Ashe Courage Award at last night's ESPYs, inferring that a soldier who lost both of his legs was more deserving.
"One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs," the meme said. "Guess which Man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the "Arthur Ashe Courage Award" by ESPN?" A slew of backlash ensued on Berg's account with one commenter saying, "I loved watching Friday Night Lights so much because I was constantly watching people finding the courage to succeed and understand themselves better and most especially watching people who struggle find their place... I'm deeply disappointed to see someone I have revered so much with my clear full heart, post something like this."
