NEW YORK (AP) – ESPN has apologized for using a racial slur in a headline for a story on Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. ESPN ran the headline “Chink in the Armor” after Lin had nine turnovers in New York’s loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night on its mobile website that could be seen on phones and tablet computers. ESPN says in a statement Saturday it removed the headline 35 minutes after it was posted. The cable network says it is “conducting a complete review of our cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake.”
Apology not fucking accepted! You can’t just go around calling chinamen chinks. Not on my watch you can’t. Seriously if I was the Yellow Mamba I’d be pissed. Heads better fucking roll. FCC better get involved. Shit ain’t right. Some things you can’t unread. Fuck ESPN those racist sons of bitches.
PS – I just did some quick wikipedia research to find out what “Chink in the Armor” even means. As far as I can tell it is because Asians have slanty eyes so a little scratch in a metallic object or armor look like their facial features. Hence “Chink in the armor.” Fair enough.
I got some headlines that ESPN could’ve used instead-
“Hornets defeat Chinaman”
“Big loss for a man with a small dick”
“Hornets beat one chink and 10 niggers”
“Slant eyes goes Down”
“Fishhead not so good anymore”
“Jeremy Lin, yellow … scared of the Hornets”
“General Tso Defeated!”
Alright I’m done, ESPN is fucking absurd. Are you kidding me with this headline?
