Haha…well, actually I have no idea what ethnicity she is. But read on.
It looks like ESPN did take action on that embarrassing racial slur printed on ESPN mobile web. They fired the person responsible for calling Jeremy Lin or his performance a “chink” on their mobile headline, and they suspended Max Bretos who said the word “chink” verbally (see the clip above).
So why does one get fired while another gets suspended? Well, Bretos is married to an Asian woman, therefore he can’t be racist!
Bretos apologized for his word choice via Twitter Saturday: “Wanted 2 apologize 2 all those I have upset. Not done with any racial reference. Despite intention,phrase was inappropriate in this context.”
“My wife is Asian, would never intentionally say anything to disrespect her and that community,” he said in a follow-up post.
Moral of the story: Marry Tiger Woods or his female equivalent. Then you will get away with anything.
