Beadle was among several celebrities to send her support to Pierce, who named his spocial media account “The Truth,” after fans harshly criticised the former analyst.

“Looks like our cooking and dance show can finally happen,” she wrote.

“You book the dancers. I’ll grab some grub. Boom. Emmy.”

“Green Light Gang ! what we doing?” added rapper 50Cent.

It was confirmed on Monday that ESPN had cut ties the controversial ex-Boston Celtics player.

It came after he failed to apologize for live streaming on his Instagram account as he took shots with bikini-clad women and filmed them twerking on the ground.

The married, father-of-three was also shown receiving a neck massage from one of the women as he smoked what appeared to be marijuana.

The NBA superstar has not yet commented directly on his controversial live stream posted in the early hours of Saturday morning, only on his firing.

His name was trending on Twitter on Saturday afternoon as fans called for him to apologize and predicted that he would be disciplined by ESPN.

Later that day, the former ESPN analyst had returned to Twitter to say “good morning” but did not answer questions about the video.

On Monday, he returned to Twitter again, seemingly in high spirts, despite his firing announcement.

“I can’t lose even when I lose I’m winning,” he said.

It followed a video posted several hours earlier in which Pierce claimed “big things coming soon.”

“Stay tuned make sure u smile,” he wrote.

The New York Post reports that ESPN fired the analyst, who was a top contributor on the shows NBA Countdown and The Jump, because he posted the video of his own accord.

Should he have been filmed without his knowledge, he might still have a job, insiders said.

Pierce appeared unfazed by the backlash even as fans asked him about his wife during the lifestream.

“What does his wife think?” one asked.

Pierce has been married to his wife Julie for ten years.

The couple first began dating during the All-Star weekend back in 2005 and have two daughters and a son.

The sportstar played in the NBA for 19 years and was the MVP of the 2008 NBA Finals with the Boston Celtics.
