Nolan and the program's hosts discussed whether the thumbs-up sign is a "white power" symbol.
Appearing Wednesday night on the almost two-year-old Vice Media channel, Nolan and the comedy duo of Desus Nice and The Kid Mero were discussing hand gestures and memes that could be associated with white supremacists.
Nolan clamored to cover up her harsh words, saying she was on "medicine" because she had the flu. And the Emmy-winning Nolan, who joined ESPN from rival Fox Sports three months ago, was clearly having fun. The first insult she used for him is bleeped out, but then she added that he is a "fucking stupid person".
It's unclear whether or not ESPN will punish Nolan or let the comments slide.

Nolan was hired by ESPN in October after previously working for Fox Sports.
ESPN's new guidelines say employees "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians or political parties" while avoiding "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric".
The exchange comes at the 13:30 mark in the video. That policy stems from the controversy surrounding Jemele Hill, who called Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and was later suspended for discussing a boycott of the National Football League advertisers.
At ESPN, apparently anything goes as long as the vitriol is directed at President Trump.
