So what did Rapoport post on social media without clearance from the NFL Network? The likely answer is a Manscaped Ad.
From Larry Brown Sports:
Jane Slater, one of Rapoport’s colleagues at NFL Media, deleted a tweet Friday that explains things.
In her deleted tweet, Slater seemed to shed light on the suspension.

I remembered that Ian replied to Jane Slater’s original tweet that linked to Ian’s manscaped promo vid. Here is Ian’s reply to that tweet, and Jane’s tweet is now deleted. Makes sense that the Manscaped ad is the reason for his suspension.
Sorry Ian. Oct 22 will be a good day. https://t.co/xLYmNrK0Jj pic.twitter.com/RMFIYVCUG3

It turns out you can't talk about shaving your balls if you work for the NFL Network.
If anyone from Manscaped is reading this, we here at Egotastic Sports can and are encouraged to talk about shaving our balls, just saying (DMs are open).
Unfortunately we'll be without Rapoport for a few days. On a positive note he now has plenty of time to shave his balls.
